New York State Business Plan Competition

Skip Navigation LinksNew York State Business Plan Competition > Champions

As we continue to grow the New York State Business Plan Competition and strive to identify New York’s top collegiate entrepreneurs and startups, it is critical that we raise awareness of the program among students and faculty at New York State’s leading institutions. As a result, we’ve engaged leaders of innovation and entrepreneurship – Champions – which are represented by professors, center directors, and administrators from campuses across the state. The Champions’ participation ensures that best of class teams and student entrepreneurs are aware of the opportunity to compete and potentially win seed money at the competition to accelerate the development and growth of their ventures.

If you are interested in becoming a Champion, or know a professor, center director, or administrator from a New York State collegiate institution who would be interested in getting involved, please contact Nicholas Querques at


Champions from the institutions highlighted below are actively involved in fostering fledgling student entrepreneurs and startups, in addition to promoting the competition around their campus and region.
