Host Institution

FSU campus


Florida State University will serve as the host of The 2022 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) InVenture Prize competition! Fifteen ACC universities are invited to send their best undergraduate entrepreneurs to compete at the nations' largest undergraduate student innovation competition. 

At Florida State University, the entrepreneurial mindset is a pervasive, animating force. We believe entrepreneurial principles are very much in keeping with the goals of every aspect of higher education—after all, being a “first mover” in any endeavor starts with a dedication to discovery and transformation. In this spirit, we empower all members of our community to launch solutions early, evaluate results critically, and make improvements continuously. Above all, this rapid innovation cycle must be flexible and collaborative and reflect profound empathy for the end-user—which we define as humanity itself.

Contestants in this year's ACC InVenture Prize competition will experience Florida State University's commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship firsthand as they tour the FSU Innovation Hub, the Jim Moran College of Entrepreneurship, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, and other campus landmarks. The final televised final round will take place in the renowned Ruby Diamond Concert Hall.
