2017 Business Plan Competition
Apr 6 – Apr 7 all-day
2017 Business Plan Competition

The nationally recognized Johns Hopkins University Business Plan Competition, hosted by the Center for Leadership Education, provides an opportunity for students to take a novel idea or innovative technology and develop a business plan based around it. Starting with a concept, students build an understanding of their target market, analyze potential competitors, craft an effective market entry strategy, and present their plans to industry professionals and venture capitalists. This highly popular event, held on the Homewood campus, draws teams from all divisions of the university.

The competition showcases the talent of students as they present business plans developed over the course of the year. Each team gives a refined seven minute presentation followed by eight minutes of questions from a panel of judges compromised of venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and alumni. All the business plans in each category are then reviewed and scored by a panel of judges.

This year the CLE will be collaborating with the InHealth team, which allows the JHU Business Plan Competition to expand into a broader medical focus, including a new Mobile App category, and enables the event to become a two-day, two-site challenge.
