The Southern Tier Semifinal Competition of the 2016 New York Business Plan Competition (NYBPC) will be held at Cornell University on Saturday, April 9, 2016. Student teams that meet the eligibility requirements are invited to submit applications for their idea or venture under one of the following six categories: IT/Software, Biotechnology/Healthcare, Energy/Sustainability, Nanotechnology/Advanced Technology, Social Entrepreneurship/Non-Profit, and Products/Services. The two winning teams in each of the six categories will advance to the final round of the NYBPC on Friday, April 29, 2016 in Albany, NY, competing for the grand prize against regional semifinal winners from New York’s 9 other Regional Economic Development Council zones – Capital Region, Central New York, Mohawk Valley, Finger Lakes, North Country, Western NY, Mid-Hudson, New York City, and Long Island.

Each team will have 10 minutes to pitch, which will be followed by 5 minutes of Q&A with the panel of investor judges. Judges are advised to act as they would in a closed-door boardroom investment presentation during the Q&A session. More information can be found at
