The deadline for the fourth annual University of Tennessee Business Plan Competition is less than two weeks away.
UT undergraduate students with the next great business idea have until March 2 to file a concept summary to the Anderson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the College of Business Administration.
Cash prizes totaling $20,000 will be awarded to the top three biz plans in two categories — technology-enabled growth businesses and lifestyle businesses.
“Entrepreneurs power the engine of economic growth. Seldom in the history of our country has there been a greater need for these generators of wealth. This competition is a first step for students who want to follow an entrepreneurial path,” Tom Graves, director of operations for UT’s Anderson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, said in a statement.
All UT undergrads are eligible to enter the competition. Students can compete individually or in teams of up to four members.
