Learn how to become an Entrepreneur
Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow (EoT) is an exclusive AGBC-Frankfurt Business Plan Competition for German secondary school (Gymnasium) students in grades 9 – 13. This year EoT celebrated its 12th competition!
Frankfurt Rhein Main area students are invited to develop new business-ideas individually or in teams of up to four. Entrants compete with students from other schools to produce the best entrepreneurial ideas and business plans. All entrants gain insights into entrepreneurship, startups, and business from their assigned mentors and from participating in workshops about marketing, finance, and presentation skills held at AGBC headquarters at TechQuartier in Frankfurt.
The business plans are judged by a panel of local experts. The top five finalists selected are then asked to present their business plans in front of an audience and a panel of judges at the event´s Awards Ceremony. The winning business plan receives a prize of 1.000 Euros and total awards exceed 2.000 Euros per year.
