The School of Management's annual Dean's Business Plan Competition is open to student teams from across Mason, in any major or discipline.
Selected teams will present their plans for a new business or venture before a live audience and panel of judges comprised of successful entrepreneurs. Presentations are limited to 8 minutes in length, and are typically accompanied by PowerPoint slides or similar visual aids.
Through the generosity of our donors, the School of Management has established the Mason Student Venture Fund and awards $30,000 in cash and in-kind services to winners of the competition. First Prize is $10,000 cash plus $10,000 worth of in-kind services. Second and third prizes are awarded cash prizes.
*Note: To attend the Awards Luncheon in addition to the Business Plan Competition you must register for both events.
