This is when we launch entré for the year, to introduce key initiatives for the year to you all. This provides you with the opportunity to network amongst yourselves, and with sponsors and UC senior management.

Annual Awards

This is our major and final event for the year at which we recognize the success of all students who have entered the various entré competitions throughout the year. This is also the event at which the Grand Winner of the $85k Start Up Challenge is announced (as well as recipients of other prizes up for grabs in the $85k Start Up Challenge). At this final event of the year, we take the opportunity to thank our sponsors and stakeholders for their contribution and involvement during the year, to reflect on the work of the current Executive and to introduce the new entré Executive Committee.
