Alba at the 2021 EBPYC

Tuesday, 18/05/2021

We are excited to announce that our School will once again participate in the long-lasting academic competition dedicated to entrepreneurship, the European Business Plan of the Year Competition (EBPYC).

The competition, hosted by Cranfield School of Management, will be held virtually on 25 & 26 June.

EBPYC was jointly created by INSEAD and London Business School in 1993 to encourage the teaching of entrepreneurship and the creation of new ventures. After ten editions, it became an independent foundation jointly owned by the participating schools. Alba has been participating to the competition since 2001 and has also hosted the event in Athens twice, on 2004 and 2013. The foundation is run by a board consisting of faculty members of the participating business schools. Alba has a long-lasting history and successful track-record in the competition as it has won the 1st award thrice and the 2nd award twice throughout that period. 

This year Alba returns to the EBPYC and will be represented by our Alba MBA students, Trust Okorie, Konstantinos Piteros, Nikoletta Roussi, Marianna Seraskeri, Anastasios Tsavalos and Emmanouil Versis.

The team will compete with the venture Battlefit, an AR fitness app combining exercise and gaming while virtually bringing together teams which work out in order to achieve a common goal. The team is supervised by Dr. George Batsakis, Associate Professor of International Business and course leader of the Entrepreneurship course at the Alba MBA. The participating schools are the following:

  • Alba Graduate Business School
  • Cranfield University
  • EMLyon
  • IESE
  • Imperial
  • London Business School
  • Rotterdam School of Management (RSM)
  • SDA Bocconi
  • Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship
  • Vlerick Business School (Ghent)
  • WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management
