Business Plan Summary  

Submit an executive summary of your business plan that outlines your business concept along with other required business plan components. Please use the business plan summary template on this website along with the additional links that have been provided to help you prepare your plan.  We will host mentoring sessions with business leaders to help you prepare your plan and presentation.   You may submit as an individual or as a group with no more than four team members.  

Competition Guidelines

The business plan you develop must be based on a viable, authentic business idea- i.e., a business that could be developed. 

The top finalists from both student groups will compete for first, second and third place cash prizes and awards on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 6 p.m. in the Votta Hall Auditorium. Honorable mention prizes and awards will also be announced.

Top finalists will have ten (10) minutes to present their business summary to judges and the audience. The judges, who are business experts, will have an opportunity to provide useful feedback and will ask questions about your business plan. The presentations may be supplemented by a slide deck (with five to seven slides) or a demonstration. 

This is an amazing opportunity to launch your brand and become a Startup Star.
