ENTREPRENEURSHIP

THE CHALLENGE CONFERENCE & COMPETITIONS

We partner with Pennsylvania universities to teach middle and high schools students to write business plans. Students and teachers attend our conferences and work on mock-up business plans at our partner university for a day, then return to their schools to complete and submit their business plans for prizes approximately three weeks later.  The top plans are awarded prizes for students and their teachers.  

THE PRESENTATION CHALLENGE COMPETITIONS

Our Shark-Tank-like competitions allow the best student teams from each school district to present their business ideas to a panel of local judges for Amazon gift card prizes for students and their teachers.  We hold these events throughout the state where we have sponsorship. 

The new 2019-20 Virtual Pitch Competition will be announced in October

STATE COMPETITIONS

Beginning in the 2019-20 school year, we will bring together the best from the Entrepreneurship Challenge Conferences, Presentation Challenges, and Virtual Pitch Competitions to Penn State University - Innovation Park in April 2020 with $5000 plus in prizes.More information will follow.
