Cranfield School of Management are delighted to announce that we will be the host for the first virtual European Business Plan of the Year Competition (EBPYC) at the end of June 2021.
The EBPYC was jointly created by INSEAD and London Business School in 1993 to encourage the teaching of entrepreneurship and the creation of new ventures. After ten editions, it became an independent foundation jointly owned by the participating schools. The foundation is run by a board consisting of faculty members of the participating business schools.
Each school selects for the competition one business plan for a new business, prepared by current MBA or MSc students and then present it to panels of investors. Current students include those enrolled during the current academic year either on a full or part-time basis. The size of a team is limited to a maximum of 4/5 students.
