The Pam Wright Chair in Entrepreneurship Business Plan Competition, open to all current MTSU students and alumni, is the year's main Entrepreneurship event through Jones College of Business at Middle Tennessee State University. Prominent early-stage company investors, entrepreneurs, and business leaders from the middle Tennessee area will judge the presentations by the final student teams.

It is designed to help students and alumni in launching new business ventures, including for-profit businesses, not-for-profit businesses, corporate entrepreneurship, and social enterprise.
