ABSTRACT
The symposium will explore why program directors or entrepreneurship faculty should host a business plan competition, what it takes to host a competition from funding to logistics, how to pick your best team or teams to go on the road; and what does it take to get a team ready to go on the road. This interactive session will highlight the experiential learning, networking, mentoring, partnership, and community involvement dimensions of such undertaking including reviewing best practices from the perspective of students, faculty, and directors involved in intracollegiate and intercollegiate business plan competitions.
