Yale Education Business Plan Competition

Jan 13, 2014


The Yale School of Management’s Education Club is excited to invite you  to submit your innovative K-12 education business idea to our 2014 Education Business Plan Competition!  The competition invites teams from a variety of fields to submit new business ideas that will positively impact the U.S. education system.  All teams must include at least one current graduate student.   

Applicants will compete for prizes of up to $10,000 and consulting support to launch their ventures, and will also gain the opportunity to meet other aspiring education entrepreneurs.  Top three finalists will have the chance to win prize money.  The 1st Round submission, a 2-page executive summary of the proposed venture, is due by January 13, 2014.  We will likely hold a Q&A session in the coming weeks before the submission deadline for interested parties.  For teams that advance beyond the 1st Round, a full 10-page Business Plan will be due on February 17, 2014.  Finalists will present their full business plans to a panel of esteemed education reform judges at Yale SOM’s Education Leadership Conference on April 4, 2014.

If you have any questions or are interested in participating in a Q&A call about the competition, please reach out to us at educationbusinessplans@yale.edu or see the evene website for more information.
