The Ohio State University Business Plan Competition
The Ohio State Business Plan Competition purports to stimulate and nourish the entrepreneurial spirit in any full-time or part-time Ohio State University student. In particular, this competition seeks to:
encourage entrepreneurially-oriented graduate and undergraduate students to develop and grow new ventures based on their own ideas and technologies.
provide the students with educational workshops to develop their ideas and pitch their ventures to investors. These programs provide constructive feedback for increasing the probability of successfully launching their ventures.
provide the best business plans with substantial resources to assist the winning student teams with launching their ventures.
To provide a relatively level “playing field” for student teams, the directors of the Ohio State Business Plan Competition and the Center for Entrepreneurship at the Fisher College of Business have developed a set of rules that all participating teams are expected to satisfy. Official Rules
The OSU Business Plan Competition is hosted and managed by the Center for Entrepreneurship at Fisher College of Business.
