Samford University’s Brock School of Business and Regions Bank will once again team up to present the 11th annual Regions New Venture Challenge business plan competition on April 26 in the Regions Community Resource Room in Samford’s Cooney Hall.
Students interested in starting their own business can enter the competition for the chance to win start-up capital, gain publicity and receive mentoring to help start their businesses. Students can be business or non-business majors. Students from other universities can also compete, but all teams must include at least 50 percent Samford undergraduate or graduate students or recent Samford alumni as team members. First, second, and third place prizes are available for the Open Division valued at $7,500, $5,000, and $2,500, respectively.
“Some people think this is just a competition, but it’s a life changing event,” said 2018 Regions New Venture Challenge Open Division winner Alex Tian ’18. “The last month or two of school completely changed the direction of my life,” Tian added. “I have no idea where I’d be today with the Regions Challenge.”
The competition is open to spectators from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. on Friday, April 26.
