Stahl Business Plan Competition
The Stahl Business Plan Competition is structured in three phases to help individuals or teams develop their plans in both a collaborative and competitive environment.
- Phase I is an optional phase that allows participants to receive feedback on a variety of ideas. In Phase I, students attend a Info Session (see schedule for dates), after the session they are assigned a mentor to review and comment on the idea submission.
- Phase II is the first competitive phase of the competition. Business Plans will be submitted via email to Kristin Nance firstname.lastname@example.org. Business Plans are then reviewed by a panel of judges. The top 3 teams will advance to the next phase. Phase II deadline is Friday, November 8, 2013 @3PM (CST).
- Phase III is the final stage of the competition. The top 3 teams will present their plan to a panel of judges. Phase III is the last round and the winning team will receive $5,000 cash to jump start their businesses as well as receive regional press recognition.
