ELEVATE is a national faith-based business plan competition for students. Our vision is to elevate and mobilize a generation of bright entrepreneurs, investors, and leaders to work for the good of others Genesis 2:15, use God-given gifts Romans 12:6-8, and multiply God’s resources Luke 19:11-27 for His purpose and Kingdom.
ELEVATE invites student teams working on for-profit startup ventures that meet our requirements and guidelines to apply to compete against startup teams from all over the country. The qualifying competition will take place in an online format with readers evaluating and identifying the teams that will then be interviewed and selected to present to judges live at our National Finals.
Four teams will be invited (with travel expenses reimbursed) to the National Finals in Silicon Valley, CA to compete for the $50,000 Grand Prize. Please visit our website at www.elevatebizplan.com for more details about how the grand prize will be invested and administered.
