P&Q to Launch MBA Startup Rankings

Calling all MBA startups. Is your company the next Facebook, Twitter or Groupon? If so, we want to hear about it. poets_and_quants.03

Poets&Quants is launching our first MBA startup ranking.   In fact, we’re quite sure it’s the first MBA startup ranking ever. 

So what exactly is it? We’re looking to identify the top 25 MBA startups coming out of graduate business schools worldwide.   

What’s in it for you and your business? We’ll name and profile the top 25 startups on Poets&Quants.  These profiles will be syndicated across Fortune.com/CNN Money and LinkedIn. The best businesses will also be featured in an exclusive digital magazine devoted solely to MBA startups.  

What if my startup isn’t making money…yet, anyway?  Don’t despair. If your startup isn’t rolling in the big bucks, you’re still encouraged to apply.  We’ll also be assessing startups for their creativity, growth potential, investor interest and social value, among other factors. 

What are the rules? We’re looking for startups that were developed in business school. The founders should include at least one current MBA student or recent MBA alum (who graduated within the past five years).  The startup must be no more than five years old.

How do I apply? Please fill out the short online survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/5QXQ5PW. All answers will be kept confidential. 

When’s the deadline? Monday, July 29

What happens next? Shortlisted startups will be contacted in August for telephone interviews.
