M&T 35th New Business Competition!


Enter this competition to have your business idea judged by M&T grads who have expertise and knowledge in venture capital (VC)!

Four business plans will be selected for presentation during the M&T 35th on-campus celebration. Selection will be based on business potential as presented in the business case. A panel of accomplished M&T professionals in VC will hear live pitches and judge business ideas submitted by all M&T grads and current students.  Participants will gain valuable advice and exposure, and perhaps also land some leads for funding.  One winner will be selected by the judges and will be awarded the coveted title of Outstanding M&T Business Idea!


Provide a 1-page Executive Summary of your business idea (including funding needs) to the contact below.  Include any additional information you want to help judges evaluate your entry in their selection of the Finalists. Finalists will deliver a 5-minute presentation and Q&A at the M&T 35th Anniversary for the final judging. Note: if selected you must be available on Friday, November 7th from 5pm to 6:30pm to deliver your presentation.
