Burton D. Morgan Business Model Competition

The Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship at Purdue University is organizing a Business Model Competition.

The competition format will provide participants with an opportunity to develop and improve transferable skills that will serve them well within this specific competition but also be valuable throughout their career journey.  The workshops, seminars, and training provided for participants will be delivered by different organizations across Purdue University (Purdue Foundry, Krannert School of Management, Purdue Polytechnic, Communications, etc).  This element to the Business Model Competition will introduce the students to new frameworks, methodologies, and approaches that they can apply in future endeavors.

There are three team categories

Teams will participate in one of the three following groups/cohorts:

  • Business to Business (B2B): This category focuses on the exchange of products, services, or information between businesses, rather than between businesses and customers.
  • Social innovation / non-profit: Ideas primarily focusing on addressing socio-economic needs/challenges – may be in developing countries or underserved populations.
  • Business to Customer (B2C): This category focuses on the exchange of products and services from a business directly to the customer/consumer.
