What is the Cangialosi Business Innovation Competition (CBIC)?
CBIC is an opportunity for UMBC graduate and undergraduate students who aspire to fulfill entrepreneurial pursuits. Participants will experience the process of planning a startup business by submitting a competitive and realistic 3-5 page business plan and qualifiers will present their idea in a final competition. The CBIC is a next level competition designed to give aspiring entrepreneurs a real opportunity to experience every aspect of planning to launch a startup. The competition pairs finalists with business mentors from the community and gives them practice presenting their ideas to a panel of experts. It also provides “real world” experience and helpful feedback. In addition to mentorship from real world experts, the program is also designed to connect students to the local entrepreneurial ecosystem.
