  • The Tulane Business Model Competition represents a radical departure from the past and the crest of a new paradigm in entrepreneurship. The TBMC is not a business plan competition.

Instead the TBMC rewards teams for 1) breaking down their idea into the key business model hypotheses, 2) getting outside the building and testing their assumptions with customers, 3) applying Customer Development / Lean Startup principles to make sure they nail the solution, and 4) learning to pivot (or change) until they have a customer-validated business model.
