The Grove City College Business Plan Competition
The Annual Business Plan Competition is coordinated by The Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. The competition provides an opportunity for all Grove City College students to learn the importance of developing a solid business plan, identifying strategies and risks and how to present their plan to potential investors.
Student business plans are reviewed by alumni and friends of the College who provide written comments, which are returned to the teams. From these reviews, Social Enterprise and Commercial Enterprise finalist teams are chosen to present their plans to a panel of judges in a public forum. Judges select winners for the first, second and third-place prizes (prize amounts will be forthcoming).   First place winners will also receive free legal and accounting consultations.  Awards are presented at the Parents”””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””” Day Award Ceremony on Saturday, April 30.  The names of this year””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””s recipients will join past winning teams on a permanent display plaque located on the third floor of the Hall of Arts and Letters.
