Hosted by the Center for Leadership Education, the Johns Hopkins Business Plan Competition provides an opportunity for students to take a novel idea and develop a business plan around it.

Over two stages of competition beginning on Feb. 25, students build an understanding of their target market and competitors, craft an effective market entry strategy, and present their plans to industry professionals and venture capitalists on competition day. This year’s keynote speaker is Maria Alexandra Artunduaga, founder and CEO of Respira Labs.
