We attended the final of the i2b business plan competition of the Austrian-Federal-Economic-Chamber. Only 15 business plans out of 232 entrants received an invitation to the final. We won the shared fourth place with Memcorby in the technical category.
The participation of the i2b business plan competition allowed us to receive feedback for our business model by two independent experts. Also, attending the i2b final allowed us to pitch our company and ideas in front of a jury of 50 experts. Furthermore, i2b is performing lots of marketing for the finalists and publishes a report for each company in the Online Presse. The report regarding Symflower can be found here.
Your business plan has to be uploaded on the i2b platform to receive feedback and enter the competition. If you already have a business plan, there is no reason against submitting it and entering the biggest business plan competition of Austria.
