Become a Sponsor

Chicago State University (CSU) is proud to host the 2014 Entrepreneurial Idol Business Plan Competition. The 2013 competition had over 75 applicants, and we anticipate exceeding that number this year.

Corporate sponsors have been instrumental in helping to defray the cost of the competition, programming costs and general operating expenses. Additionally, the generosity of sponsors has allowed us to uphold our commitment to supporting the entrepreneurial endeavors of future Illinois businesses by creating a space for successful business executives, small business owners, and faculty from the University's College of Business to lend their expertise.
