SUNY Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly), University at Albany’s School of Business, and Syracuse University will host the seventh annual New York Business Plan Competition (NYBPC) on Friday, April 28, 2017 in Albany, NY.
The New York Business Plan Competition (NYBPC) is a venture creation and innovation competition that was established in 2010 to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship throughout New York’s colleges and universities.
The lead organizing institutions have grown the NYBPC from a small, regional competition into a statewide competition with some of the largest awards and prizes of any student business competition in the world. The NYBPC is the only leading collegiate business competition that is a regionally coordinated, collaborative statewide program representing over 75 colleges and universities, which sets it apart from all other competitions in the nation.
Since 2010, over 2,100 student teams from almost 75 of New York’s colleges and universities have pitched their ideas and ventures at the NYBPC. The winners are selected each year by esteemed judges, including venture capitalists, angel investors, investment bankers, other sophisticated public and private investors, and seasoned entrepreneurs. At the end of the 2015 competition, more than $2,300,000 in cash and in-kind prizes have been awarded to student entrepreneurs in New York.
