Entrepreneurial Engagement via Business Plan Competitions
This is a How-To Guide to creating a Business Plan Competition. In March of 2019, we organized the first StartUpTanks.com challenge in India and Bangladesh. In just one month we were able to gain the participation of over 1,100 students on 224 teams from 20 universities, primarily in Western India and Bangladesh. A simple challenge to prepare and present business ideas in a competitive format swelled into a very intense competition where students obtained funding for their winning ideas on the spot from a combination of schools and benefactors. We are challenging you to engage your students and compete to success in starting companies.
