Since 1982, the Knapp Venture Competition is one of the premier academic business plan competitions in Southern California. Each spring, UCLA Anderson students showcase their entrepreneurial talents while receiving feedback from successful entrepreneurs and business executives who serve as judges.
During the past four decades, the Knapp Competition has supported more than 2,500 Anderson students in honing their entrepreneurial skills. Each May, the competition culminates with the final round presentations and award announcements. We are deeply grateful to Betsy and Bud Knapp for their legacy of support for this program, which has inspired generations of Anderson entrepreneurs.
