Presenting the Seventh Annual Business Plan Competition
April 23, 2022 at Concordia University Irvine
On April 23rd, 2022 Concordia University Irvine (CUI) will host the 7th Annual Concordia Business Plan Competition (CBPC). It will facilitate two divisions: an undergraduate division composed of CUI 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.
In 2020 and 2021, COVID-19 caused us to make a huge shift to a virtual platform in order to continue this competition. Thankfully, this year we are pleased to announce that we will be moving back to in-person presentations on our competition day and the business mixer the evening before. We will continue to keep contingency plans in place for competition continuity.
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.
