In its 11th year, the Canyon Challenge has a new name – the Trinity GCU Canyon Challenge.

The biannual entrepreneurial competition also has a new sponsor – Trinity Capital, which will supply two of the three judges for the 4 p.m. event Friday at Canyon Ventures.

The final five and their startups:

  • Joshua Helm, The Bear Game: A fun, family-friendly card game.
  • Panashe Bvundura, Toxic University: Unique and customizable T- shirts and apparel.
  • Jayce Candrea, Washed Clothing: A T-shirt company that aims to give back to the homeless community by providing clean clothing.
  • Luis Peña Espinoza, Conext: A social media platform designated for business collaborations and meetings.
  • Esther Nies, Tailor: A browser extension/application that aids customers in buying the right size clothing when shopping online and in-store.

The finalists, chosen from 12 entrants, were selected through an elimination process at the weekly Shark Tank. They will try to convince the judges to grant them a piece of the $5,000 in prize money provided by Trinity Capital.

Kevin Youngblood, Canyon Ventures’ Entrepreneur in Residence, will be the other judge.
