The Business Model Competition at UCF celebrates teams who test their innovative ideas with potential partners and customers, and use what they learn to improve their proposals.

Presented by the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, the event gives students the opportunity to network with entrepreneurial leaders, have their hard work recognized, win cash prizes and have a chance to compete at the international level.

Entrepreneurial spirit is at the very heart of #UCFBusiness. The college is continuously working with students to provide unique entrepreneurial opportunities.

The competition takes place on February 20th at noon in the Business Administration 1 atrium. Students will be judged on a number of criteria, including prototype development, clearly laid-out plans and the ability of the business model to solve a significant problem.
