The Fort Worth Business Plan Competition

In 2011, the Fort Worth Business Assistance Center launched a new initiative, a business plan competition that gave special recognition to five outstanding small business owners and entrepreneurs in our community. Through a competitive selection process, the finalists were provided one-on-one business counseling, attended professional development workshops, and received coaching from industry experts through the Business Assistance Center and its many partners. They also received consultation from MBA student-coaches at TCU.

Planning is underway for our 2017 Competition! Our event will kick-off in May 2017 with the final pitch night to be held in October 2017.
