The Big Ideal Competition at the Texas Startups Roadshow

13 startup companies have been selected to compete in the Big Idea Competition (BIC), a Shark Tank-style pitch competition hosted annually by The University of Texas at Dallas’ Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The BIC brings together the best undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines, alongside top research faculty and alumni, to pitch the most innovative startups and ideas to a panel of esteemed judges. The program typically draws more than 800 attendees each year and this year will award more than $200,000 in scholarship awards and cash prizes.

Mark Cuban, co-star on ABC’s “Shark Tank,” owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and Author of “How to Win at the Sport of Business,” will deliver the keynote at the Big Idea Competition on November 19.


What will we do in each city?
