The Business Plan Competition is a regional competition designed to stimulate innovative thinking to leverage a technology-driven economy while retaining our region’s talent. It is about businesses investing in Northeastern Pennsylvania’s greatest asset…its PEOPLE. Aspiring teams are from two separate categories: Collegiate and Non-Collegiate sectors.
Building on current entrepreneurship education initiatives taking place at our local colleges and universities,TecBridge recognizes the importance of entrepreneurship to a productive local economy; thereby a Regional Business Plan Competition was created. TecBridge understands the importance of promoting and harnessing free enterprise on a regional scale.
Students from the area’s fourteen colleges and universities, along with non-collegiate teams are eligible to win $100,000 in cash and in-kind business services to launch their tech-based company, all while gaining valuable insight into the world of business and entrepreneurship. The Business Plan Competition Awards Dinner takes place the first week of May each year.
