Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership

Business Plan Competition

The Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership will hold its 7th Annual Business Plan Competition on Thursday, April 17, 2014. This is an opportunity for students to exercise their creative and learned business skills for a chance to win money to start their business.

The competition is open to all USF undergraduates. All majors are encouraged to enter. The plans are judged on many different criteria including how likely the business is to be started, and how well the business integrates Franciscan Values.

Please stop by the School of Business office to pick up your entry folder in PJPII Room 302.  The office is open weekdays from 8:00a through 5:30p.

PLEASE NOTE:  No 2013 winners to announce.  The Business Plan Competition usually held in the Fall was postponed until April 2014.
