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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
