An Ecosystem For Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Considered the most prestigious and well-funded education business plan competition, since 2010 the Education Business Plan Competition (EBPC) has earned a name for itself by attracting innovative ideas from around the world and spotting winning education innovations early on.

Previous finalists have gone on to grow their ventures, attract investors, and have a positive impact on education. The competition is distinguished by the size of its prize pool, the crowd-sourced judging process (which includes teachers, investors, entrepreneurs, and researchers), and both the breadth and depth of the ecosystem we offer aspiring entrepreneurs. What sets the EBPC apart in an increasingly crowded field of business plan competitions is not only the close contact entrepreneurs have with
other players in our education ecosystem, but also our unshakeable commitment to moving research into practice, a tenet first espoused by Penn’s founder, Benjamin Franklin. The foundation of the EBPC is our belief that education is different: in order to be truly effective, ventures in this space must rest upon established research in the field.

The Milken-Penn GSE Education Business Plan Competition is open to applicants worldwide and offers a tremendous opportunity to entrepreneurs and investors alike. The competition includes a path for Ventures as well as a path for Ideas. In offering multiple prizes and prize categories, the EBPC attracts innovative ideas in education from around the world, ranging from those structured on local or global needs, public or private issues, Pre-K through adult education, and social or for-profit ventures.
