The 2022 Business Plan Challenge is an opportunity for any current Fanshawe College student to showcase and pitch their business plan to faculty and industry professionals, for a chance to win $3000+ in cash prizes. If you have been working on a business plan for a class or something all your own, now is your chance to turn it into something that can win you money to move the business idea forward or support your financial demands as a student.

The Business Plan Challenge will consist of two rounds:


  • ROUND 1

    • The first round of the challenge is a PRE-RECORDED 5 MINUTE VIDEO PITCH submission due on February 18th, 2022.

    • Our judge's panel will choose only the 10 Best Submissions by February 25th, 2022 to move forward to the next round.

  • ROUND 2

    • The second round of the challenge includes a LIVE 10 MINUTE PITCH (via Zoom) on March 30th, 2022 to a panel of 3 - 5 industry professional judges.

    • The Top 10 will have access to coaching sessions to help them prepare for their final 8 - 10 minute pitch (via Zoom).

We have created a Pitch Presentation Template and Scoring Rubric to help you prepare the best pitch possible. Please use them as a guide!
