Student Corner / Beyond the Classroom / Model Entrepreneur Competition

Model Entrepreneur competition




Venture for All (VFA) is an internationally recognized club developed by Columbia Business School, the business school of Columbia University of Manhattan, New York City. The club focuses on preparing students for the entrepreneurial aspects of the business world and requires collaboration, critical thinking, and confidence-building throughout the year.

Students have the opportunity to participate in the Model Entrepreneur competition toward the end of each school year for which they must prepare through exploring innovative ideas, writing business proposals and value propositions, creating SWOT analyses, and exploring how to market and defend their product/service ideas.

At Kang Chiao International School - Linkou Campus (KCISLK), two teams were able to advance through the first round to compete in the final round of the competition in Shanghai, China in May 2019. This school year, we had two more teams qualify for the final round from KCISLK; however, COVID-19 has left the finish of the competition for the 2019-2020 school year in question.
