Description

The Riata Business Plan Competition is a competition hosted by Oklahoma State University School for Entrepreneurship and the Riata Center for Entrepreneurship. The competition is open to all Oklahoma State University Students as it promotes entrepreneurship and small business development by focusing on student created, managed, and owned ventures. Students are provided with expert feedback and the opportunity to win cash prizes to help fund their ventures.

The 2019 Competition will have three competition tracks for students to compete in.

  1. Main Street Business This category is for small business startups whose products or services are readily available to the general public. Businesses in this category may have a brick and mortar location or run a retail operation completely online. Main Street businesses innovate through execution and differentiation strategies.

  2. High Tech Business This category is for high tech startups that have some sort of intellectual property at the core of their technology offerings. Businesses in this category will usually have patents to disclose or have a unique offering that can scale into large industries. High Tech businesses innovate through technology and go-to-market strategies.

  3. Social Enterprise This category is for social endeavors that are trying to develop, fund, and implement solutions to social, cultural or environmental issues. Businesses in this category could focus on either domestic or international issues in an attempt to better society.
