About Wharton Business Plan Competition:
In 2013, the Wharton Business Plan Competition celebrates its 15th anniversary. The past 15 years have seen many great businesses built, funds raised, companies sold, and serial entrepreneurs started on their entrepreneurial journeys.
The WBPC is a comprehensive, 7-month platform to help entrepreneurs and their teams launch their new business ideas. The WBPC is structured in three stages to help teams develop their plans in both a collaborative and competitive environment. The WBPC's entrepreneurship workshops feature entrepreneurship experts including Penn & Wharton professors, as well as alumni entrepreneurs. The WBPC provides a network for brainstorming, feedback, and future business opportunities. Participating teams develop their ideas with the guidance from top business leaders who serve as mentors and judges. Finally, the top three finalists receive national press attention and share more than $115,000 in cash and prizes to jumpstart their businesses. The top team walks away with The Perlman Prize (made possible through the generous support of Ellen Hanson Perlman and Richard E Perlman, W'68). The Perlman Prize carries a $30,000 cash prize and $15,000 of in-kind services.
