BMC Global Participants and Partners, Along with many international event organizers, we have been closely monitoring the state of the COVID-19 outbreak. After much consideration and out of an abundance of caution and prudence, we have decided to cancel this year’s Business Model Competition Global event. We are making this decision now to minimize costs by all involved. We recognize that this news may be disappointing to some especially those students graduating this year, but we appreciate your understanding.
Before making this decision, we explored the option of doing an all-virtual event. Given the nature and purposes of our event we ultimately decided that a virtual version would not add the value we expect nor meet the high standard we have set. We hope you know that this decision was not easy to make given how excited we were to showcase changes we have implemented this year and to see/interact with the student teams.
We look forward to planning and executing another memorable event next year that will continue the strong tradition of BMC Global. For teams who are still eligible, we encourage you to continue working on and validating your business idea so you can participate next year.
As always, we thank you for your support of this competition and the principles we champion. The efforts we make together have a tremendous impact on lives all around the world!
