NYC Next Idea 2011-2012 Business Plan Competition
Do you have a business idea that would be perfect for New York City? With start-ups in life sciences, fashion, green technology and beyond finding success in NYC, you just may have the right idea to make it big in the City!
The NYC Next Idea 2011-2012 Business Plan Competition provides students and recent alumni the unique opportunity of accessing substantial funding and support to implement their business ideas in New York City.
Six teams of finalists will win a six-day, all-expenses-paid trip to New York City in the week of March 19th, 2012 to participate in the final round of the Competition, which will be hosted at Columbia University. In addition to funding prospects, finalists gain valuable experience interacting with leaders from top venture capitalist firms and businesses in New York City as well as the opportunities to tour the City and learn about its robust business and entrepreneurship community.
We are inviting teams of 2-5 participants to submit business plans for ideas that may be commercially viable in New York City. Additionally, this year we’re introducing a track that will allow teams to have one New York City-based student on the team.
