This page is here to help people who are (or will be) contestants in the CSUF Business Plan Competition. What follows is a combination of general resources for people who are interested in starting their own business and information that is more germane to this competition of ours. We will update this page periodically as we come across valuable material for entrepreneurs and more information about the CSUF Business Plan Competition is available.

What we are looking for in your Business Concept Questionnaire Answers

This is a bit of a loaded question because everyone’s business is different and, as such, you should focus on extolling the virtues of your business idea and attempt to address, or at least minimize, any weaknesses. But, in general, we are looking for:

  • Companies that have the potential to grow big and fast
  • Companies that have an identifiable niche and a market that can sustain your business as it grows
  • The right people in place on your team (this can be people who aren’t CSUF students – although, only CSUF students can present and win money and prizes)
  • Show that customers really want your product/service (i.e. Value Proposition)
