Rohrer New Venture Competition

The Rohrer New Venture Competition encourages students to pursue entrepreneurial ventures and develop high-growth businesses. The competition, held in April each year, aims to prepare students for future entrepreneurship efforts and provide an opportunity for participants to win cash prizes for their venture.

Quote: “Engaging with Rowan students is one of my favorite ways to give back. My father, William G. Rohrer, was an entrepreneur, I’m an entrepreneur, and my family and I are proud to support the vibrant entrepreneurship ecosystem at Rowan through the Rohrer New Venture Competition.”​Since its inception, the New Venture Competition (originally the Business Plan Competition) has awarded over $130,000 to students and student teams launching their business ideas into reality. The competition provides an opportunity for students to understand the process of starting a business and develop their ventures in both a collaborative and competitive environment.
