ENventure – A Business Plan Competition

“The best way to predict the future is to invent it”

 

IMS Ghaziabad (University Courses Campus) hosted a business plan competition (ENventure) sponsored by Ghaziabad Management Association (GMA) with more than 28 teams from various colleges in the Delhi NCR region who imparted their unique ideas and business concepts. The competition occurred contemporaneously at three different venues: Auditorium, IQAC Room, and Mini Audi of IMSUC. The goal of holding this business plan competition was to initiate a friendly rivalry amongst the competitors, to help them clarify their approach, investigate possible bottlenecks, determine their needed resources, and assess the feasibility of their concept or expansion plans before they commence their startups. We had a seasoned jury of peers evaluate the contestants on a set of factors.
