Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today encouraged college students across the state to apply for the seventh annual New York Business Plan Competition.

Each team that enters the competition will be able to pitch a business idea to an experienced panel of judges -- made up of national venture capitalists, angel investors, investment bankers, and private equity investors -- and potentially win more than $500,000 in total prizes, including a $100,000 grand prize.

The regional semifinals are scheduled to take place in late March and early April, and the statewide finals will be hosted by SUNY Polytechnic Institute at its Albany site on Friday, April 29. A list of application deadlines by region is available at www.nybplan.com.
