The New York Business Plan Competition (NYBPC) prides itself on innovation and technical merit. Both of these values are hallmarks of the organizing institutions, and we strive to integrate them into every aspect of the competition. To do so, we have established a transparent judging process with no conflicts of interest between our judges and the teams that they are evaluating. All of our judging panels are composed of a mix of investors and industry experts, including venture capitalists, angel investors, investment bankers, other sophisticated public and private investors, and seasoned entrepreneurs. Moreover, we ensure to have technical subject matter experts – each of them with expertise in one of the categories – to evaluate the technical feasibility and scalability of the plans in their category.

If you are interested in participating as a judge for the 2015 NYBPC, or know an investor who would be a good fit to judge the competition, please contact Ashley Pillsbury at
