Other Info


Contest participants will be evaluated on the quality and feasibility of their idea in a short Business Idea Concept Paper. The five submissions judged as best will move on in the contest as a Finalist. Similar to the “real world” pursuit of capital, there will be an opportunity for Finalists to submit a written business plan. Finalists will have a formal oral presentation of their plan with a panel of judges and investors.
