Welcome to the 19th Annual tecBRIDGE Business Plan Competition!

As this year’s returning Co-Chairs, we are proud to support the great volunteer work that has made the tecBRIDGE Business Plan Competition the region’s signature entrepreneurship and innovation event.

Building on last year’s virtual Live Presentation Finals and Awards Event, all of this year’s BPC19 activities will take place virtually in support of important health and safety protocols. We can’t wait to see how the team pulls off virtual help sessions!

As we ramp up this year, we wish to extend a special thanks to two important groups that make this event possible. First, over fifty fantastic sponsors that contribute to the cash prizes and in-kind services that help launch the winning teams. Second, over sixty community volunteers that share their time and talents in help sessions, mentoring support, team evaluations, and event preparation activities.

Please make sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, April 29th at 5pm for another great online show celebrating entrepreneurship and innovation here in NEPA. 

Best of luck to all of this year’s BPC19 entrants!
