Babson’s Signature Entrepreneurial Thought And Action ® (B.E.T.A) Challenge Now Open To Alumni Entrepreneurs

Alumni entrepreneurs, undergraduate and graduate students will compete for $20,000 grand prize each on Thursday, April 11th

The 2013 B.E.T.A. Challenge at Babson College kicks off on Thursday, April 11, 2013 when for the first time, Babson’s ‘alternative’ business plan competition will give alumni entrepreneurs their chance to win $20,000.

Winners in three categories ─ alumni entrepreneurs, undergraduate and graduate student entrepreneurs ─ will each win a grand prize of $20,000 in cash and “services in kind” donations from corporate sponsors. In addition, $2,500 will be awarded to the two other finalist ventures in each of the three competitions.

The B.E.T.A. Challenge is Babson’s ‘alternative’ business plan competition where entrepreneurs must demonstrate success in reaching major milestones achieved through action. It builds on Babson’s branded teaching method—Entrepreneurial Thought & Action or ETA®—and on the idea that entrepreneurs are made, not born. B.E.T.A. challenges entrepreneurs to lead at all stages, levels and types of organizations, and to bring a range of skills to bear on Entrepreneurship of All Kinds™.
