The Business Plan Challenge is the culmination of SNC’s 2021-2022 business plan competition series. Competing teams are judged on their written business plan; their ability to adapt and incorporate feedback into a revised written plan; and their live oral presentations.
The Business Plan Challenge oral presentation evening attracts an enthusiastic audience from both the college and community. The teams present their business ideas using PowerPoint, video, and often work physical prototypes. Each team has five minutes to make their pitch, present a short market analysis and financial summary, and respond to questions from the judges. Three winners receive $1,350 in combined cash prizes.

The business plan competition series at Sierra Nevada University, hosted by SNU’s Business department, is a cornerstone of our commitment to our students’ professional preparedness and entrepreneurial thinking.
All SNU Tahoe students are eligible to compete in the business plan competitions, which mirror the idea-to-fruit process of launching a new product or enterprise. At each event participants present in front of a live audience. They receive detailed feedback from judges drawn from the business faculty and Lake Tahoe’s large community of successful entrepreneurs and business innovators. Throughout, they have the opportunity to work with faculty and community mentors to develop their project to a professional level.
