Hosted by the W. P. Carey School of Business, the Sun Devil Igniter Challenge was a funding challenge for students who saw the reward in risk and possessed the drive to create change through a disruptive, innovative idea. This challenge is not currently available at the moment. More venture funding opportunities can be accessed through the Venture Devils program.

Spark Tank Live Pitch Event

Join us November 2016 for this exciting event to see the Sun Devil Igniter Challenge finalists present their disruptive innovations to our Igniter Board, as they vie to become the Sun Devil Igniter and receive a $50,000 seed investment! Up to five finalists will receive $5,000.

The Igniter Challenge Board of Directors — a highly-sought after, prestigious, experienced group of serial entrepreneurs and active investors — will be involved every step of the way. An unprecedented advisory experience, the Board will not only judge the competition, but also act as a “Board of Directors” for the winning entrepreneurial team in the first year following the competition — the “Igniter Year."
