Hackberry’s Business Plan Competition

Do you have a mind for business? A potentially awesome idea for a startup? Maybe you just want an opportunity to learn real-world business, marketing, product design, and communication skills to help you succeed as you explore entrepreneurship. Hackberry's business plan competition is a great platform to get you started! You will have the opportunity to develop your business idea, get mentored by industry experts, and pitch your idea to a panel of judges. Here's what you need to do:

The competition has two categories: one for 10-12-year-olds and the other for 13-15-year-olds.

Step 1

You can apply for the competition individually or in teams of up to four members. Fill out the form on our website, describing your business idea and plan, and upload a two-three-minute explainer video before 21 January 2020. Each team must have an adult supervisor.

Step 2

The best entries will be shortlisted on the basis of the creativity, viability, and marketability of their business ideas. The results will be announced by 28 January 2020.

Step 3

The selected students will participate in a mentoring round on 8 February 2020. They will be taught how to create and present their business plan. Note that your entire team will need to be present physically for this mentoring round.

Step 4

Get set, present! Our kidpreneurs will present their business plans to a panel of judges in a Shark Tank-style format on 15 February 2020. They will be judged on the creativity and uniqueness of their business solution, commercial viability of their plan, and their presentation skills.

Note : The application fee will be Rs. 500/- payable by bank transfer after the filling of the application form.
