Past Winners & Finalists


"Participating in the Milken-PennGSE Business Plan Competition provided us with the opportunities to be mentored by leading edtech visionaries and connect with other trailblazing edtechpreneurs."

Jason and Tracy, MindBlown Labs







"As a Finalist at the competition, I was given thoughtful feedback on my pitch and met colleagues who became valuable collaborators."

Beth Schmidt, CEO, Wishbone

“The competition provided an opportunity to meet a broader network of influencers in the education technology sector who can provide feedback on your venture and context that may not be obvious when first starting up.”

Adam Geller, CEO, Edthena

"The process of preparing for the competition was one of the most valuable exercises our company has ever experienced. It demands that you consider every part of your business and integrate them in to a consistent document, presentation, and pitch. In a sense Intellidemia 'grew up' going through the competition."

Judd Rattner, CEO, Intellidemia

"Over a year later I have continued to interact with entrepreneurs and educators I met through the Milken-Penn GSE Business Plan Competition. They have done a fantastic job at curator the movers & shakers, not just as participants, but as judges and mentors too."

David Blake, Co-founder & CEO of Degreed (2012 participant)
