This year’s Business Plan Competition marks our 21st year, with activities culminating in the Awards Event Thursday, April 27, 2023 at 5PM at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre, PA.  

Student teams from the region’s colleges and universities compete in the Collegiate Division while early-stage entrepreneurs compete in the Non-Collegiate Division. Guests attending the Awards Event will be introduced to our finalists and learn about their business ventures before the winners are announced. This year we are also celebrating the return of the High School Business Plan Competition along with the High School Big Idea Essay Finalists. 

tecBRIDGE would like to extend a special thanks to all of our sponsors and supporters in these challenging times – your generosity has been amazing. Thanks to their support we will continue to offer $10K cash prizes to each of the Division Winners and share in over $100,000 in in-kind services to help launch their businesses.

Finally, we are especially proud to recognize the 60+ community volunteers that participate each year in support of mentoring, fundraising, judging and event planning.

Mark your calendar for 5pm, Thursday, April 27th for the 21st Annual tecBRIDGE in-person Awards Event to celebrate community innovation and potential.
