SD Mines CEO Student Business Plan Competition Program

Have you ever thought about turning an idea into a business? The SD Mines Competitive Entrepreneurial Opportunity (CEO) Program, a student business plan competition, is the perfect starting point for students who are interested in entrepreneurship. The competition introduces students to entrepreneurship by providing training, mentors, and the opportunity to pitch their ideas for a cash prize! In addition, it's a great platform to prepare our students for the SD Governor’s Giant Vision Business Plan Competition.
