Team Mime, consisting of three NSE-graduates Arif Mirza, Vebjørn Kjærvik and Patrick Carstens, won the prestigious NSE Business Plan Championship. This is an internal competition for all students attending NTNU School of Entrepreneurship. Participating teams were required to analyze real-life business problems, write a business plan and present it to a jury consisting of renowned investors and management companies.
There were a total of nine teams participating from the fresh 4th year students. Of which, five of the teams went through to a final round. According to the jury, the presentations reached an all-time high in both quality in the business plan and presentation execution. Mime scored high on several judging parameters, including outstanding business concept, credibility in ability for future execution, high energy in presentation, modesty in relation to achievements of objectives etc.
The winning team will also participate in Global Venture Labs Investment Competition (GVLIC) – “The Oscars of Business Plans”, in Austin, Texas in the beginning of May.
Winners of last year, Aalberg Audio, used the trip to Texas as a springboard for the launch of their award-winning product, with great success.
Stay tuned for updates on Mime.
