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:

  • 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.
