The BCVC is a university-wide business plan competition designed to promote and support entrepreneurship at the undergraduate level at Boston College.

Helpers, an application-based platform that connects tutors and tutees to increase the efficiency in the tutoring service market. Noggin , a software solution that works with intelligent eyewear (e.g. Google Glass) to help quadriplegic individuals, who cannot speak, to communicate using head movements. Postcard , the first merit-based exposure platform for Instagram users. 1950 Collective , which creates high quality, sophisticated, and sleek fandom apparel designed by the co-founders and artists, with 10% of profits donated to a different women empowerment organization each month. Each team was given two minutes to pitch their business idea to the panelists, followed by a five minute Q&A session. The panel included some very impressive individuals and BC alumni  including Greg Strakosch ‘84 of TechTarget, Kristin Keating ‘94 of EY, Bob Davis of Highland Capital Partners, John Morrissey of Shea Ventures and Bridget Akinc of the Carroll School of Management.
