As per the 11th meeting of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of BRAC University held on 30 June 2014, a proposed Business Plan Competition (BPC) for the students of BRAC University was approved to be organized by the Centre for Entrepreneurship Development (CED).
In this reference, the abovementioned BPC was organized on 9 July 2015 at CED Office, 19th Floor, Building No. 2, BRAC University, 65 Mohakhali, Dhaka 1212. The BPC was coordinated by Ms. Afshana Choudhury, Program Manager, CED. Mr. Shamim E. Haque, Assistant Professor, BRAC Business School (BBS) and Senior Research Fellow, CED was the moderator of the BPC.
A total of nine (9) groups were selected for participating in the final presentation of the BPC (first round) out of twenty two (22) groups mentored by CED. A “Jury Panel” consisting of BBS faculty and other distinguished personnel was selected for evaluating the business plans submitted by the groups. The panel also checked the feasibility of these plans. The list of groups (including the name of the team leaders) and the list of jury panel are attached herewith.
The business plans were evaluated through a “Business Plan Evaluation Grid”. The jury panel rated the groups according to various criteria of the evaluations grid, and they provided marks to the groups as per their business ideas and presentation performances. The entrepreneurial business plan assessment scheme was divided into two (2) major dimensions: Communication Dimension and Credibility Dimension. A sample of the evaluation grid is also attached herewith.
After rigid scrutiny and evaluation (attached) of the marks given by the jury panel to each groups, it has been finalized that the group no. 4 named “Ninja” came out as the first among the groups that participated in the final round (or final presentation) of the BPC. Therefore, the group “Ninja” is hereby pronounced as the champion of the BPC, and will be enrolled to the BRAC University Business Incubation Centre (BUBIC) funded by Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project (HEQEP).
