Baylor University’s John F. Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise has opened applications for the 11th annual “Baylor New Venture Competition” (BNVC), a two-day business plan and elevator pitch competition for collegiate entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world.
And, for those who yearn for more in-person events, Baylor says that is the plan right now. Applications must be submitted through the “Baylor New Venture Competition” website by November 1 to be considered. The competition will be held March 24-26 at Baylor’s Paul L. Foster Campus for Business and Innovation in Waco, TX.
As described in this news release, this is a multi-round competition. Applicants start with a two-page executive summary. The Top 50 then submit a 10-page business plan and the Top 10 finalists compete for more than $250,000 in cash and vital resources to grow their business. Each finalist team is paired with an experienced mentor and given opportunities for pitch coaching.
