Presenting the Eighth Annual Business Plan Competition

On April 1st, 2022 Concordia University Irvine will host the 8th Annual Concordia Business Plan Competition (CBPC). It will facilitate two divisions: an undergraduate division composed of Concordia undergraduate students, and a high school division comprised of high school teams from the Orange County Area. We are excited to be able to once again hold our competition this year.

The Competition consists of two parts. The first part is a written business plan document. This document is based on professional business plans that any startup would require and follows a provided outline. The second part is an 8-12 minute oral presentation of this plan/idea to a group of investors (judges) in a Shark-Tank like setting.  

High School Applications are due December 16, 2022
Undergraduate Applications are due January 20, 2023
The Mixer/Social Night is March 31, 2023 at 4:30 PM
The Competition Day is on April 1, 2023 at 9:00 AM
