  • This Student Business Plan Competition encourages students to think "Shark Tank" and come up with their own Business Idea. Students will compete for funding. The NYS Business Plan Competition encourages students to think like entrepreneurs and provides them with tools and resources to develop their prospective businesses. This competition is open to students in all fields.

Background and Mission

As new centers of power emerge in the global economy, the capacity of our region and state  to "grow our own" innovative products and services, startup companies and good quality jobs continues to gain in importance. Led by the European Union and the U.S., the top 20 nations in GDP now also include not only China, Japan, and Russia but also Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, Indonesia and Turkey. In addition to sustaining and enhancing our nation's leadership in science and engineering, one of the most critical factors in our success as a nation, state and region is fostering entrepreneurial talent. The goal of New York State Business Plan Competition and its regional affiliate, DARE (Dare to Risk Entrepreneurship) Long Island, is to encourage student entrepreneurs to self-identify and provide them with tools and resources to develop their fledgling ventures. All will receive entrepreneurial development support; up to twelve will receive cash awards and the opportunity to compete for larger prizes at the statewide level. Dr. Jing Betty Feng has made herself available to answer any questions you may have on your Business Plan.
