Have you ever wanted to bring a business to life?


Contributed by Paul Deamer

Enter the Spring 2014 Business Plan Competition for a chance to compete for $37,000 in prize money! 

You are invited to join Competition mentors, Brad Treat and Tom Schryver, on Thursday, March 6 and Thursday, March 20 at 6:45pm in Business 204 to learn more about the competition, how to compete, and what to bring to the table.

Six businesses will give a ten minute presentation about their company, followed by five minutes of Q&A from a panel of experienced judges.  After deliberation, the top three business plans will be announced.  The demands for the businesses will be higher, but so will the prize money. 

This competition is different than the Business Idea Competition.  This information session will discuss the difference in what your plan presentation should entail, and you’ll have the opportunity to run your plan by Competition mentors for feedback. 

We welcome students from all majors and encourage students to work in teams!
