CenterFuse is the lead sponsor for the 2022 Central Washington University Cat Tank Business Plan Competition. The competition is open to all CWU students, is affiliated with the Entrepreneurship Club, and is a student-led effort.

Students participating in the business plan competition may be a ‘sole proprietor’ or work with a team of up to five people who will develop and present a business idea. After registering for the plan competition, students will attend a workshop and qualify as a finalist. Eight teams will be selected by the students to proceed to the final competition.

On May 20th at the CWU Foundry, eight CWU students/student teams will present to a team of judges, including CenterFuse board members. Prize money for first place is $3,000 and second place is $2,000, provided by CenterFuse.
