Thank you for your interest in applying to the Milken-Penn GSE Education Business Plan Competition!
NOTE: If you are choosing the Idea path, it means you do not have any of the following: customers, revenue, outside investment, or grants. If you already have any of these you are a venture and should apply for the Venture path.
All submissions must be completed and submitted by the application deadline.
Educational entrepreneurship ideas should outline the problem they address, offer a solution, discuss implementation and scaling possibilities, and describe the impact your proposed idea will have on teaching, learning, and/or education. Broadly construed, educational entrepreneurship initiatives can address a wide range of educational issues. This competition encourages applications in every conceivable educational setting – from early childhood through corporate/adult training, in settings and contexts anywhere in the world. We also welcome both nonprofit and for-profit submissions. In terms of focus, we invite submissions that address issues of curriculum, instruction, educator professional development, assessment and evaluation, collaborations, learning design, technological innovations, learning/school support tools, and more. In evaluating submissions, our judges will consider the importance of the educational problem, the merit and feasibility of the proposed solution, and the potential for widespread impact.
Applicant teams may include individual or team applicants; no experience in education is required. Please be sure to also review the Competition Rules before submitting your entry.
Thank you, and best of luck!
