About

We are building companies from scratch, and every dollar counts! 

The University of Wyoming College of Business leads UW's exciting entrepreneurship competition every year, and we want you to be a part of the impact we are having. Every year, teams from the University of Wyoming and all of Wyoming's community colleges compete to develop a business plan that has the opportunity to diversify Wyoming's economy. 

During each round of competition, these budding businesses thrive with our support, whether in the form of mentorship, financial resources, or technical expertise. As we seek to ensure they get the resources they need, our entrepreneurship program continues to expand the scope of our role.

The John P. Ellbogen $50k Entrepreneurship Competition has been growing Wyoming businesses since 2000 and has impacted countless student entrepreneurs. Today we are reaching out to each and every entrepreneur who understands the struggle of turning an idea into a reality. Remember the courage it took, the unbending optimism, and the resilience you needed to move forward. 

Please join us in supporting the John P. Ellbogen $50K Entrepreneurship Competition with your big give!
