The Mel Woodward Cup is an exciting business idea competition for all Memorial University students. Each winning team will be awarded $10,000 of leverageable funding, $1,500 marketing and legal services, a fixed table in MCE’s co-working space for a semester, and free registration to the Genesis’ Evolution Program.

We invite you to watch and cheer on the final top eight groups for the second annual Mel Woodward Cup while they present their business ideas and hope to claim one of the top prizes!

The finals will be a high-energy and fun-filled event where innovation and hard work will be rewarded with hard cash!
