Please note that competition prizes will not be confirmed until spring A team participating in the competition can consist of one or more contestants and can include non-students.
However, there must be at least one MTSU student or alumnus on each team. We encourage all participants to take advantage of all the resources provided, mentors, prep sessions, etc. There are three major parts to the competition: Approximately teams are chosen to progress to the next round.
Teams are scored by two constituents: Trade Show judges are pre-selected judges chosen by the Pam Wright Chair in Entrepreneurship who visit the booths and select a minimum of three teams they feel have the best business idea and presentation. Community Choice judges consist of fellow students, friends, and other members of the community who visit the displays and then vote on their favorite business ideas and presentations.
They may vote for one to five business ideas and presentations. During the Trade Show, each team will designate one member student or alum to give their three-minute Elevator Pitch.
While absent from the Trade Show giving your Elevator Pitch, be sure to have a back-up person manning your Trade Show booth.
If you are the only person on your team, it is possible to engage up to two other non-team individuals to help with the booth and make presentations to Trade Show and Community Choice judges. The combined results of the Trade Show scores, given by the Community Choice judges and the official Trade Show judges, as well as the scores from the Elevator Pitch Round and Screening Round, will narrow the field down to the final teams that will continue to the Final Presentation Round.
Three to four teams will proceed to the Final Presentation round exceptions to this number may be made based on the quality of business plans submitted. The Final Presentations focus on the complete business plan where teams present their plans to a group of judges and field questions.
Teams will give a maximum 15 minute presentation followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers. The judges will meet after the presentations to make final award decisions. Winners will not be announced until the Awards Reception. The presenters will receive feedback from the judges in written form and mentoring within a week after their presentations.
The finalist teams will receive special coaching sessions prior to their final presentations. If teams choose to revise their final plan before the final coaching session, the business plan will be due back three days prior to the coaching session to give the coaches time to review it.
After the coaching sessions, the final business plans will be due at least six days prior to the Final Presentations. The finalist teams will also be required to create a Power Point presentation for the Final Presentation.
MTSU Alumni from any school or college within the university are eligible to participate in the competition, not just the Jones College of Business. Non-student business professionals are allowed as team members, but there must be a Middle Tennessee student or alum on the team.
You may not enter a plan that was entered in a previous year. In the final presentation round of the competition, only students or alumni will present.

Not all prizes may be awarded depending on the quality of submissions.
