Business Plan Contest

Contest Winner Projects

Diplomats Society is pleased to inform you of the Charter Cities Business Plan Contest by Charter Cities Institute. The non-profit organisation Charter Cities Institute launched the Business Plan Content to identify teams around the world with forward-looking, viable plans for a charter city. Cities in which the governing system is defined by the city's charter document rather than by general law. A city can adopt or modify its organizing charter by the decision of its administration by the way established in the charter. These cities may be administered predominantly by residents or through a third-party management structure because a charter gives a city the flexibility to choose innovative types of government structure.

 

The purpose of this contest was to identify capable teams to build charter cities. The Charter Cities Institute provides ample oversight and guidance to the winning teams and introduces them to investors, policy experts, and other individuals or groups necessary for their success. The winning teams are expected to form a company to build a charter city.

Winners of the Contest

    After numerous application reviews and interviews, Charter Cities Institute announced the winners of the Charter Cities Business Plan Contest. The 1st prize and $25.000 is awarded to Enyimba Economic City from Nigeria. The 2nd prize and $10.000 is awarded to Blackstone Charter Cities from Australia. The 3rd prize goes to Novgorod New Hanse Town from Russia. The winners each exceeded the expectations regarding the location, target industries, and growth potential of their respective charter cities. The Charter Cities Institute looks forward to working with all three teams as they execute their plans.

     

    To meet these teams and more, save the date for the upcoming Charter Cities Conference, held on 17th & 18th March 2020,  at the Hilton Sandton in Johannesburg, South Africa.
