Strakosch Venture Competition

The Strakosch Venture Competition is a university-wide business plan competition designed to promote and support entrepreneurship at Boston College. With mentoring from experienced alumni and faculty, students develop and implement the skills necessary to start successful businesses. Several sessions throughout the year offer additional coaching and advice from entrepreneurs, law partners, venture capitalists, and other executives.

 

Business plans are submitted for judging and finalists are chosen to present their plans to a panel of judges consisting of executives and entrepreneurial experts. Team funding will be awarded - winner will receive $15,000, runner-up will receive $7,500 and social impact will receive $7,000.  Many participants have gone on to leverage their ideas and learning to launch and grow real businesses.
