Carolina Challenge Pitch Party and Carolina Challenge Makeathon

Want to earn cash prizes for your entrepreneurial idea? Always dreamed what it’s like to pitch your idea in front of expert judges like Shark Tank? Come join us for the Carolina Challenge Pitch Party and Makeathon! The Carolina Challenge Pitch Party is the premier entrepreneurship event at UNC. Every year, dozens of teams pitch their ideas during the Fall semester to over 150 judges at our Pitch Party in hopes of winning prize money to fund their ventures. Moving into Spring semester, students can also participate in the Carolina Challenge Makeathon. UNC’s Week-Long Makeathon is a creative, cross-campus competition which accelerates innovative ideas into physical and digital prototypes that promote positive social impact.
