Florida Atlantic University students, faculty and staff are invited to compete for cash and prizes in the 2016 FAU Business Plan Competition, hosted by FAU’s Adams Center for Entrepreneurship and the College of Business.

Those interested in registering for this year’s Business Plan Competition can apply online at business.fau.edu/bpc. Applicants can create a profile, start their application and come back to further develop their concept. Applications must be submitted by midnight on Sunday, Jan. 31.

Applicants can record a 60-second “elevator pitch” and upload it to the Reviewr platform on the competition website. Organizers recommend uploading the video to YouTube, making it private and including the hyperlink in the online application. Applicants are encouraged to sell their ideas with enthusiasm in their videos, rather than relying on special graphics and editing. They will receive feedback from the panel of judges and perhaps more importantly the public, who may become their first customers.

The top 10 applicants will be selected on Monday, Feb. 22. These competitors then will work closely with business mentors to develop their business plans.

The five finalists will be announced on Monday, March 28.

The competition takes place Monday, April 11from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the FAU College of Business Atrium & BU 120 classroom, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. Register for the competition luncheon at business.fau.edu/bpc.  Cost of the luncheon is $10.
