About The Competition

Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi are looking all over the National Capital Region (NCR) for the Next Great Entrepreneur. We don’t know where you are, or who you are, but we know you are out there. Turn your idea into a business plan, submit it to us, and compete for the chance to be India’s Next Great Entrepreneur.

We're looking for the top business plan in 3 different tracks.

General Business Plan:  An all encompassing category where you can use your creativity to submit a business plan for any viable business. Do you have an idea for a product or service you want to sell or think would appeal to consumers? Should an existing company expand to a new market? Have you discovered a new technology that could change the face of an industry; and if so, how would you sell it earn a profit?

Green/Sustainable Business Plan:  Here is an opportunity for the planet’s biggest fans to submit plans for businesses that are profitable and realistic, but with a view towards conserving resources or utilizing green technologies. Business plans in this category need not rely solely on the invention of new technologies to be valid. You are welcome to look at existing businesses and develop plans to help them “go green” while still remaining profitable, provided those plans are of your own creation.

Women's Economic Empowerment: A category for both men and women who have an idea for a business that creates economic opportunities for women through products or providing employment opportunities.
