The West Virginia Business Plan Competition is open to any and all WV college students. All you need is an idea for a business and you can win $10,000!


You can work in teams or alone.  Submit your idea by September 28 to be entered into the contest. After that, you will be teamed with a business coach to help you through the rest of the process.  If selected for the competition, you will give an elevator pitch for the second round.  In April 2013, the final round of the competition will be held where the complete business plan will be judged and presentations will be given.
