Congratulations to the teams who made it through to the second round!

The University’s annual Business Plan Competition experiences its highest number of submissions with 35 teams progressing to the second round.

Opened to all students from all campuses, including those from Vietnam and Singapore, 171 teams entered the competition with 35 teams making it through the first round.

Pleased with the outcome and the diversity of entrants is Amy Harrington, Manager, Enterprise Relations at the University. “While most teams are from Melbourne, five are from Ho Chi Minh City, one from Singapore as well as one from Open Universities (based in Western Australia),” Harrington said.

The University’s Business Plan Competition offers students a fantastic learning experience, free seminars, great networking opportunities, and a prize pool of up to $100,000 (AUD) to assist in turning the winning team’s dream into reality.

The entrepreneur–in-residence, Marcus Powe, hosted a Meet your Mentor function recently, pairing those who successfully made it through the first round to an experienced business mentor.

“It’s a great experience to see a whole community of highly successful and influential industry members come together around the competition, to judge, to mentor, and to sponsor,” Powe said.

“These professionals from Singapore, Melbourne and Vietnam, give their time and their expertise to the competition, ensuring that the best and the brightest are identified and rewarded.”

Powe will complete a roadshow of workshops in the coming months in Australia, Singapore and Vietnam.
