Regional Business Plan Competition

The School of Business is launching the first regional business plan competition, in partnership with the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Union Graduate College. The competition will focus on renewable energy and sustainability and is open to students at all Capital Region colleges or universities. This spring, students will submit innovative business plans designed to fill a currently unmet need of the energy sector. The top teams chosen will then present to a panel of scientists, investors, and executives of the energy sector. The grand prize for the winning team is $10,000. In addition, the teams placing second and third receive $5,000 and $2,000, respectively. The competition will take place on April 28, 2010.
