Two Tracks: Ventures and Ideas
As of the 2017 Competition, the Venture and Idea paths of the Milken-Penn GSE Education Business Plan Competition will run in series rather than concurrently (but both paths do still exist!). The Venture path, which is aimed at entities that have or plan to generate revenue, grants, customers, or investors, will open for submissions in January 2017. The Idea path, aimed at entities in the earlier stages of development, will open for submissions around Summer 2017. If your Idea is very early in its development, please check back with us in Summer 2017 for more information. And of course if you have any questions about which path you should enter, feel free to contact us!
Venture Path: Please check back in January for more information regarding the 2017 Venture Path prizes.
