A Good List of Business Plan Competitions 1

I got an e-mail over the weekend asking me for a list of business plan competitions. That makes sense; I’ve been posting a lot about them lately, and participating in them.  See recent posts: for example, business plan competitions grow up last week; and my business plan marathon series on my main blog. So, as a service to all, here’s a link to Biz Plan Competitions, a website focusing on exactly that: listing and cataloging business plan competitions.


I say hats off to the people at JFH Innovative LLC in Pittsford, N.Y., who are running that site. It’s hard to keep up with all the competitions these days because new ones are popping up all the time.

The second best list I know of is the one at the Palo Alto Software software (my company) website. We list academic business plan competitions, including more than a dozen of them that we contribute to as sponsors.
