I was reading the Inside Indiana and noticed that Purdue University is holding it’s 19th Annual Business Plan Competition. The university says this Fall it will offer six workshops to help prepare teams to write business plans to qualify for the competition.
The competition is not entirely closed to Purdue University students and faculty. Outsiders can make up to 20% of a team but a student must make the presentation on Feb 16, 2006. If you know someone who is a student or faculty member at Purdue they have have the opportunity to compete for $100,000.
Those who have an idea or a technology for a business or an interest in running their own enterprise should come to the informational call-out sessions at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday (Aug. 31 and Sept. 1) in the Krannert Auditorium or register for the competition online by Sept. 12. Registration information and the complete competition calendar are available at http://fred.e-enterprise.purdue.edu/wps/portal/_s.155/7069.
