What’s a venture profile?
A venture profile is an abbreviated version of your company’s business model. Information includes an executive summary, industry analysis, competitive analysis, target market, product/service overview, marketing strategies, human capital, operations, financial analysis, and any supporting documentation.
Submit your venture profile by January 31.

A venture profile is required to compete in the competition. While we encourage you to submit a business plan with your supporting documentation to supplement your venture profile, a business plan is not required.
