Welcome to the 20th Annual tecBRIDGE Business Plan Competition!
Twenty years ago, we were fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in a new thing called the “Great Valley Business Plan Competition”. We weren’t sure what we were actually getting ourselves into, but it has turned out to be one of the best decisions of our lives.
Twenty years later, the tecBRIDGE Business Plan Competition stands as the region’s signature entrepreneurship and innovation event and that is all due to the ongoing work of an outstanding group of volunteers.
To be honest, we are humbled to Co-Chair this year’s event and all that goes along with it. We are also excited to build on the livestream efforts of the last few years and add back in many of the in-person activities that make Competition activities so special.
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 forty friends and colleagues that share their precious time and talents in help sessions, mentoring support, team evaluations, and event preparation activities.
Please make sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, April 21th at 5pm for a truly special Anniversary Awards Event at the FM Kirby Center in downtown Wilkes-Barre.
Best of luck to all of this year’s BPC20 entrants!
Proud BPC1 Champions!
