Baylor New Venture Competition 2023
The Baylor New Venture Competition is underwritten by an anonymous gift to Baylor University and the Hankamer School of Business. This business plan and elevator pitch competition showcase collegiate students who created, managed and led ventures from across the globe.
The differentiator between this competition and others is the focus on encouraging student entrepreneurs worldwide to catalyze and grow their businesses.
