Apply for Sponsorship

Dun & Bradstreet is passionate about supporting colleges and university-based organizations that educate and inspire the next generation of business leaders through business plan competitions. Vice Chairman of Dun & Bradstreet, Jeff Stibel, is particularly passionate about supporting young entrepreneurs because he was once in their shoes.

Basic sponsorship for approved colleges and university-based organizations:

Complimentary access to a full year subscription of Small Business Starter** to all business competition participants to help jumpstart their new business venture.

In addition, first place winners of the business plan competition will receive branded sleeping bags for those long hours working to get their company off the ground. Claim your sleeping bag.

In exchange for sponsorship support, Dun & Bradstreet requests the following:

• Logo placement in business plan competition materials
• Link placement on schools’ website

Note: All sponsorship requests are negotiable. Please contact Dorothy Kiniti at for sponsorship inquiries or submit your requests in the contact form.

**A promo code is needed to redeem your complimentary one-year subscription to Small Business Starter. Please check with your school administrator to obtain your school's unique promo code and instructions on how to redeem your complimentary business credit product.
