Baylor New Venture Competition
A Transformative Experience
The John F. Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise will host the eleventh annual Baylor New Venture Competition on March 24-26, 2022 at Baylor University's Foster Campus for Business and Innovation. This business plan and elevator pitch competition showcases collegiate student created, managed and led ventures from across the globe. The competition provides participants with personal and professional development through:
- industry-specific mentorship towards sustainable business plans,
- exclusive access to accomplished experts and fellow innovators,
- and a chance to compete for over $250,000 in cash prizes and vital resources.
Since its inception in 2012, more than 500 student entrepreneurs world-wide have applied to compete in the competition. Nearly $1 million in cash and prizes has been awarded to these collegiate entrepreneurs. Several BNVC finalists have had additional successes beyond the BNVC. Most noteably, Orai (2018 second place winner) and Nanodropper (2019 top-ten finalist) were both named to the 2021 Forbes 30 Under 30.
