Do you have a new and innovative idea for a business product or service? Or maybe just know that you want to be your own boss and start a business? Become an entrepreneur and launch your idea while competing with other schools in the Mid-Hudson region.  Learn how to develop a business plan, pitch your idea and transform it into a new business venture by reviewing the information session slide deck. 

The Mid-Hudson Regional Business Plan Competition encourages students to build their own business idea and compete for funding. Winning prizes in the form of mentorship and cash prizes encourges teams in the regional competition and the NYS Business Plan Competition to think like entrepreneurs and provides them with the incentive to develop their prospective businesses and continue to invest their own time and effort to launch their business.
