Many Business Plan competitions or Pitch competitions allow students to perfect their pitchs and raise money. There are different types of competitions: regional, state and global competitions.

Competitions provide critical early stage seed funding. This enables student ventures to work on customer discovery, prototypes, patents and business incorporation, plus business development and product needs, from concept to commercialization.
