Rhode Island Business Plan Competition
September 24, 2014
2015 Competition Launches Oct. 14
The Rhode Island Business Plan Competition will launch its 2015 competition -- expected to award prizes in excess of $200,000 -- on Tuesday, Oct. 14, at a Kick-Off event.
Last year's winners -- CompNet Insurance Solutions, Nordic Technology Group, and Dual Server Cooling -- will join us Oct. 14 and share the evolution of their business idea, explain critical steps they took in applying, including what worked and what didn't, and how winning has impacted them.
The Kick-Off, to be held at Betaspring, 95 Chestnut St., Providence, is free and open to the public, but we ask that you pre-register.

Competition Will Have Two Tracks
The 2015 Competition, once again, will be organized along two tracks: a Student Track for those enrolled in college or graduate school, and an Entrepreneur Track for anyone. Participation in the Competition is free and open to adults, age 18 or older, whether or not they already have started a business.
Applications can be made online starting Dec. 1 and will be accepted through March 30, 2015. Learn more.
Events Scheduled throughout the Competition
Join us for the annual annual Rhode Island Elevator Pitch Contest on Dec. 4. Pitch your business idea in 90 seconds to a panel of business experts (and a live audience) and get immediate feedback -- plus the chance to win cash prizes.
Then, in January, February, and March, take part in a series of seminars that aim to help attendees learn how to develop a robust business plan that will attract investors
All events are free and open to the public. Learn more.




The Rhode Island Business Plan Competition, supported by businesses, nonprofits, colleges and universities, and public agencies, is the only one of its kind in New England.
