Sponsorship Opportunities

The mid-Hudson regional business plan competition (MHBPC) represents a unique opportunity for sponsors collaborating with the program to provide visibility and marketing for their organizations.  This semi-final competition is a lead in for the premier collegiate business plan competition in New York State and one of the largest competitions of this kind in the country.  In addition to the 6-month targeted marketing strategy deployed by the organizers that actively promotes sponsors of the program, the MHBPC provides:

  • Access to participating students from major college and university communities throughout the 7-county region
  • Opportunity to network with investors as well as other business and political leaders who participate in the program
