One of our main goals in hosting the Business Plan Competition is to spread the gospel, so to speak, of Entrepreneurship across the CSUF campus. Why? Well, we all have anecdotal evidence of CSUF students who want to start their own business and while many of these students are business students there are a lot who are not. And, quite frankly, many of the Mihaylo Business students who are not concentrating in Entrepreneurship do not get enough information and support to start their own businesses in their concentration’s classes.

To put it another way: We use the Business Plan Competition (and the Fast Pitch Competition as well) to inspire students to start the process of launching their own business.

So, the big question is “How many non-Entrepreneurship students did we get to sign up for the Business Plan Competition?” Quite a few.

Here are the Majors/Concentrations (as self-reported by the students) that were represented in this year’s Business Plan Competition:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Computer Science
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Physics
  • MSIS
  • Communications
  • Marketing
  • RTVF
  • Biology
  • Film
  • Civil Engineering
  • Software Engineering
  • MBA
  • Finance
  • Economics
  • Accounting
  • PR
  • International Business
  • Management
  • Administration Health Sciences
  • Environmental Health and Occupational Safety
  • Health Sciences
  • Kinesiology

That is 23 different Majors/Concentrations that were represented in this year’s Business Plan Competition! We think that is an impressive stat and it goes to show that the Business Plan Competition is reaching students all across campus. Hopefully next year we can get an even more diverse group of students in to the Business Plan Competition!
