Fox School of Business Sponsors Business Plan Competition
Submissions for the third and final phase in the Fox School of Business’s sixth annual Business Innovation Plan Competition are due April 20.
All students, alumni and employees of Temple are permitted to develop and submit a business proposal for the competition. Teams can also include participants from outside of Temple. The team participants from Temple must coordinate at least 75 percent of the team’s representation during the judging.
Preliminary judges will choose six finalists who will be given the opportunity to present their ideas two more times during the award ceremony May 4. Judges will consist of business leaders in the Philadelphia area and will judge the ideas on their innovation, feasibility, return for investor and overall uniqueness.
This year’s first-place winner will be awarded $6,000 and a trip for two from STA Travel to Mexico. The remaining five runner-ups will be awarded at least $250. The top three winners will also be given the opportunity to travel to Wilmington, Del., to represent Temple in the Early Stage East business venture fair May 10.
