Since 2004, Santa Clara University and Mary Furlong & Associates have co-produced the Silicon Valley Boomer Venture Summit and Business Plan Competition, and each year has been more successful than the one before. The event brings together entrepreneurs, leaders in the field of aging and the venture community to create a unique forum to explore, share and design products and services that will dominate the baby boomer market in coming years. In addition, this program is designed to teach entrepreneurs how to think through a business.
Business Plan Competition
The culmination of the Boomer Venture Summit will be the ninth annual Boomer Business Plan Competition. Since 2004, this competition has fostered a cutting-edge forum to explore, share and design the products and services that will dominate the growing boomer marketplace. Contestants will meet investors and partners, secure resources and get media exposure that can help turn dreams into realities.
This year’s competition will be offering a
$10,000 grand prize for the best business plan.
All entries will be judged by a panel of distinguished professionals from the venture capital, business, media and education communities, each of whom will have expertise in the various segments represented.
