ASEAN Virtual Business Plan Competition

University of New England Business School shared an invitation to students to take part in this fantastic opportunity, applying their studies in an international arena, being mentored by international experts and put in the running to win a trip overseas for some completely unique business experience.

The ASEAN Business Plan competition is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian-ASEAN Council (AAC) of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and involves institutions in three countries: Rangsit University in Thailand, Universiti Teknologi MARA in Malaysia and the University of New England in Australia. Each of these three universities held a national business plan competition and the winning teams from each country pitched their ideas virtually to a panel of international judges.

The winning Australian team was mentored to develop their idea into a business, while the winning team in the international competition received, in addition to business mentoring, a visit to one of the ASEAN countries to explore an export market for their product.

The International Competition was held 3 July 2018 at UNE Sydney.
