News Story

Are you an aspiring CEO? Submit your big business idea by Friday, May 15, and you just might win the grand prize: $500, not to mention bragging rights. All great startups have to start somewhere.

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, of course, bragging rights. Many winners have gone on to become founders of their own company! Some of their ideas have included:

  • >> Dock-less scooter-sharing platform

  • >> Breakthrough 3D printing technology

  • >> Pop-up shop offering Japanese merchandise

  • >> And more!

This competition is open to all Pace students (undergraduate and graduate!) 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 Friday, May 15, 2020, and the winner will be announced on Friday, May 22, 2020. You must register in order to compete.

Good luck!
