Aspiring entrepreneurs recently collaborated to refine their business strategies in a “boot camp” to prepare them for a business plan competition to be held next month. Students will be competing for more than $50,000 in cash and other prizes, which they are encouraged to use toward further development of their business plan. Jessica Harvey, a business major, already has an idea in mind. Her concept is “to market green products to the government.” She said she plans to find local businesses that have trouble marketing their products and pair them up with mandates the government needs to meet.
Students who attended the event learned how to create opportunities to make their business ideas more attractive, timely, durable and more valuable to buyers. The presentation encouraged students to use their skills, knowledge and expertise to create a business plan for the competition.
