New York Business Plan Campus Competition

Do You Have The Next Big Idea?

The goal of New York State Business Plan Competition 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. Students compete at the Campus finals level for an opportunity to advance to the Long Island Regional Competition where they compete against students from NYIT, SUNY Old Westbury, Stony Brook University, Adelphi, and Hofstra.

2024 Competition (all information is subject to change)

Farmingdale continues to participate in the Long Island Regional program as part of the New York Business Plan Competition (NYBPC). No Farmingdale State college student will be turned away.
