The Business Plan Competition is open to all UIW students (undergraduate and graduate). Teams may also include one non-UIW student. Teams can be a single contestant or several people.
Teams will develop a product or service idea and create a plan to launch it in the marketplace, including the application of their knowledge about finance, management and human resources, marketing and consumers, accounting, business law and information systems.
All teams will receive thoughtful and positive feedback from professors and other community professional volunteers as they go through their plan’s development. A mentor will be assigned to teams who would like one. Other benefits to students include resume building, real-world advice, and of course, the top teams win cash prizes.
Participating in the Business Plan Competition allows students to develop their entrepreneurial skills. As students build their plans, they will practice problem solving, increase their ability to work with others, and improve their time management.
Exact dates for the 2017 Business Plan Competition have not yet been set. Please check back later for exact dates, times and locations. Below is a general timeline of events:
