Show us your Entrepreneurial Idea!

Calling All High School Students!

Do you have a great idea to build your own business? Are you curious about entrepreneurship and building a successful startup? Then show us your entrepreneurial talent and win exclusive coaching sessions with an active business angel investor!

Competition Information

All you have to do is send us your business proposal and explain why this idea is important to you.

Your Business Proposal needs to be a 5page (max) document supported by a short video (2 min) of you introducing and explaining your business idea. When describing your proposal, we recommend the use of the Business Model Canvas.

The best proposals will pass to the final round and the teams will be invited to Business School Lausanne (BSL) to make their pitch in front of the Jury. 

The top three business proposals will win a series of entrepreneurial coaching sessions to further develop the proposals and guide the teams towards prototype creation and discover how to take your product to the market. The coaching sessions will be led by André Delafontaine, an active business angel investor and co-founder of Go Beyond Investing AG, a network of 800 early stage investors having funded over 200 rounds in startups. In 2017, he founded excelerate partners to empower corporations and individuals to innovate through intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship.
