The Boston College Venture Competition (BCVC), a program of the Carroll School of Management, is a university-wide business plan competition designed to promote and support entrepreneurship at the undergraduate level at Boston College.  With mentoring from experienced alumni and faculty, students develop and implement the skills necessary for starting successful businesses.  Several sessions throughout the year offer additional coaching and advice from entrepreneurs, law partners, venture capitalists, and other executives.
