Event Title: The Junior Chamber International (Malta) Best Business Plan Competition

Date: Wednesday 20th November

Time: 20.00

Venue: The Palace Hotel, Sliema

Event Details:

The JCI BBP Competition, now in its twelfth year, aims at fostering an entrepreneurial spirit among members and the community. Participants were invited to develop their business ideas (either as an individual or as a group of up to four persons) and to turn them into a concrete business plan, while standing the chance of winning up to €2,500 and potential access to the necessary finance for implementing the business plan. As part of the programme, a number of training sessions were held by leading experts from various industries, and a number of one-to-one guidance sessions were provided to the participants by KPMG. The final judging of the business plans took place during the JCI BBP Awards Final Night. At this event, participants presented their business plans to a panel of expert judges who selected the winner.

This event was organised by JCI (Malta), in collaboration with The Edward de Bono Institute, University of Malta.
