Penn State Altoona is entering the business plan competition market. Deadline is November 7, 2011. From the school:
Penn State Altoona will host the Pechter Business Plan Competition beginning in November 2011. The competition consists of four phases which will conclude in April of 2012.
The Pechter Business Plan Competition provides a process for students to turn great ideas into great businesses. Competitions encourage students to form interdisciplinary teams, to take ideas from the concept phase, through a feasibility study/market analysis to a full business plan, and to build a new venture. These Competitions are designed for students across all programs at Penn State Altoona, and welcome the participation of students not enrolled in the entrepreneurial or business curriculum. Student teams receive extensive feedback and receive written comments from judges.
The deadline to register for the competition is November 7, 2011. For more information, visit http://www.altoona.psu.edu/pechter online.
