WVU Competition Heats Up During GEW

With an unprecedented number of entries this year, the West Virginia Statewide Collegiate Business Plan Competition, hosted by West Virginia University, will hold the second round of the competition on Nov. 22 to celebrate GEW.

In round 2 of the competition, semifinalist teams continue to compete for three $10,000 prizes for winning entries in each of the three categories – STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), Lifestyle & Innovation and Hospitality & Tourism. Winning teams will also receive a one-year professional services package valued at more than $4,000 that includes legal and accounting services. Winning teams must also establish and open their businesses in West Virginia.

β€œTo have the second round of the Collegiate Business Plan Competition be a part of this world-wide celebration of entrepreneurship is just fantastic,” said Steven Cutright, director of the BrickStreet Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
