BMO Financial Group APEX Business Plan Competition

The BMO Financial Group Apex Business Plan Competition creates an atmosphere for entrepreneurial-minded students to come together to celebrate talent, encourage entrepreneurship as a viable option for the future, prepare for the challenges of a volatile global marketplace and, most importantly, have fun.

Cash prizes for the best business plans

This competition gives participants a chance to develop, direct, organize and present a business plan to a panel of judges. These judges will select the most plausible and promising business plan in each track and award cash prizes to each successful team. Prizes will also be awarded to the first and second runners-up as well as individual awards, such as Viewer’s Choice Award.

Teams compete in a variety of events at either the undergrad or graduate levels in front of accomplished judges in the fields of marketing, finance and entrepreneurship. The competition is designed to challenge participants to be innovative and creative.
