MANILA, Philippines – Do you have a unique business idea? Esquire Financing Inc. (EFI) has just launched Fueling the Dream, a business model competition for college students. Enter and you just might win P100,000 and up to P1 million in capital.

Through this contest, EFI hopes to promote entrepreneurship among the youth. Thus, registered participants will not only gain experience, but also receive mentorship from EFI officers and event partners. Following the submission of business models in November are 2 rounds of preliminary screening, leading to the finals on December 6, Saturday, where finalists get to present their business model in front of a select panel of judges. 

Aside from the prize money, the winners will also get to be featured in Entrepreneur magazine.
