The 2013 Business Creation Competition showcases student ideas and concepts for a business. Students compete individually or as a team for cash prizes and seed funding based on the quality, creativity, and innovation of their business.
Students prepare a business model and presentation for a panel of 4 judges made up of outside business professionals. Each judge will have $750 they can choose to invest in any way they see fit. This means they could invest all $750 in one business, divide it amongst several businesses, or choose not to invest their money at all. Judges will be considering the following in their selection process:
- Creativity/Innovation of business idea/concept/model
- Validation of why business the business idea will work
Results of the competition will be announced later the day of the competition (April 26, 2013).
We can help you get ready! Attend Ideas inc., a weekly workshop to help you prepare for the competition. Ideas inc. begins Monday, February 18 at 5:00 PM in ADM-SCO 109. Click here for more information.
