News Story

Submit your business ideas by Wednesday, May 15, in order to be eligible to win $500—plus bragging rights. Many winners of the eLab’s Pace Business Plan Competition have gone on to become founders. Are you the next CEO?

The Pace Business Plan Competition is a time-honored University tradition that’s hosted by the Entrepreneurship Lab (eLab). Every year, students submit their ideas for a new company venture via a full-length business plan in hopes of winning the big prize: $500 and bragging rights. Past winners have included a dock-less scooter-sharing platform, breakthrough 3D printing technology, a pop-up shop offering Japanese merchandise, and more.

This competition is open to all Pace students (undergrad and grad) as well as recent alumni. Please read the guidelines thoroughly! You will be expected to write details such as an executive summary, objectives for your business, and a market analysis—just to name a few. Ready to get started?

The deadline to submit your business plan is Wednesday, May 15, 2019. You must register in order to compete.
