The Houston Community College Center for Entrepreneurship is preparing for the 13
th annual HCC Business Plan Competition. We invite you to join 50 to 60 other experienced entrepreneurial, business and technology experts by applying to become an Advisor today.
Advisors are a powerful and sustaining thread in the program; as an Advisor you will have an opportunity to help entrepreneurs of all ages who are entering the HCC Business Plan Competition to take expert advice and use it to become more successful.
Twenty-five entrepreneur teams will be accepted into the 2020 Competition.
We accept proposed, startup and existing companies who are entering to create refined and polished plans to start and/or grow their businesses. Each team (of 1 to 5 contestants) will move through the competition training and advising from late February through April. Each of the contestant teams will be matched with two expert Advisors. If you are selected as an Advisor, you will be matched to a team based on your preferences and the team's business concept and needs.
Advisors are critical to the success of the Competition.
The Role of the Advisor is to:
Encourage contestants to meet deadlines and complete competition;
Review contestants' work regularly;
Advise and guide contestants pointing out deficiencies and making suggestions;
Lead by example: meet commitments, keep contestant(s) positive, encourage timeliness and complete work, follow-up on status of suggestions made at previous meeting; and
