SC Students Compete Campus-wide During GEW/USA
Nov 02, 2010
Kudos to the Entrepreneurship Club at the University of South Carolina.
All USC students -- not just those in its Darla Moore School of Business -- are competing in the school's Global Entrepreneurship Week Business Plan competition hosted by the Entrepreneurship Club.
According to the Daily Gamecock, the USC daily student newspaper, the contest is open to "all full-time students of any major, not restricted to those enrolled in the business school." The approach makes sense as entrepreneurs don't simply walk out of business schools ready to start a firm -- they emerge from all academic backgrounds and can just as easily be found in the engineering school or music department across campus.
Other details about the competition:
- Students can enter as a group with up to four members or individually.
- The applicants' identities will remain anonymous until the finals in order to ensure no bias.
- The business plan must consist of six pages at most where the student(s) should explain financial information and cover the basics - what will you sell, who will buy it, why and how they will buy it.
- Five finalists will present their business plans on November 18, during Global Entrepreneurship Week.
- First-place winners will receive $1,000, second-place $750 and third-place $500
Good luck Gamecocks!
