START Contest is the main event of START Lausanne, its goal is to introduce the students to entrepreneurship. 
During the different eliminatory stages of the Contest, the teams have to work on all the different phases of a startup creation, from the Elevator Pitch to the Business Plan, passing by the Value Proposition. From October to April, they are surrounded by experts from the entrepreneurial or academic world, who teach them classes or give them advice to transform their idea into a real startup. 
At the end of April, during the closing ceremony, the 6 finalists present their work in front of the jury and the public, and the laureates win 30’000 to launch their startup.
