The 2019 Draper Competition sponsorship opportunities are a one-of-a-kind opportunity to recognize and support emerging generations of women entrepreneurs. Draper remains the only U.S. competition advancing collegiate women entrepreneurs.

A limited number of sponsorships will be offered to companies who share the Draper Competition’s commitment to breaking down barriers for collegiate women entrepreneurs.

We invite you to meet and celebrate the diverse female talent from colleges across the country—the leaders of tomorrow.
