M&T entrepreneurs, dust off those business plans!

Here is your chance to impress!  At the 30th Anniversary, M&T will be holding its first business plan “friendly competition”.  What better way for M&Ts to showcase the inventiveness that so typifies the program?  A few selected business ideas will be chosen for presentation and panelist critique in front of an alumni/student audience.  It promises to be an interesting and lively session.

 

Alumni judges will include:

Doug Alexander, M&T ’83, President of Internet Capital Group

Raj Amin, M&T ' 95, CEO HealthiNation

Jeffrey Lieberman, M&T '96, Managing Director, Insight Venture Partners

Rob Stavis ’84, Managing Partner at Bessemer Venture Partners

Roland Van der Meer, M&T '82, Managing Partner, Fuse Capital 

 

Here’s how it will work:

Application: Interested alumni/undergraduates must fill out the below application and also submit a 200 word summary of their business concept.  The idea may be an existing start-up business, or simply a business plan. 

Deadline for submissions will be Monday, September 14th at 5:00pm EST.   All applications can be submitted to Lea Engle at lengle@wharton.upenn.edu. 

Selections: Approximately 4-5 entries will be selected by the 30th Anniversary Committee to be presented to the group.  There will be 2 alternates.  Nominated entries will be informed by October 23rd of their selection. Nominees and alternates should prepare a short audio-visual presentation.

Presentation: Each presentation will last no more than 6 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of feedback/advice from the judges and 1-2 questions from the audience. We will be on a strict time frame.  The session will take place on Friday afternoon November 13th starting at approximately 5:00pm.

Prizes: There will be no prizes given. It is an exhibition, not a competition.

Sponsorships: sponsorships are available for this event.  Please contact the Anniversary Committee. 

Good luck!

The M&T 30th Anniversary Committee
