Turn Your Business Idea Into Reality!

A key step to translating a great idea into a profitable business is the creation of a professional business plan. Good business plans address the variables surrounding the many decisions you’ll make as you launch and build your business, as well demonstrate to potential investors the merits of investment in your company.

The La Macchia New Venture Business Plan Competition is structured in successive phases to help you fully develop your business idea into a comprehensive business plan that’s ready to present to a judging panel.

You will have the opportunity to attend workshops on issues including marketing essentials, financial fundamentals, and writing a “stand out” executive summary. As the competition advances, you’ll also be assigned a mentor who can provide additional one-on-one guidance prior to submitting your final plan. If you make it to the “finals,” they’ll also help you prepare for your presentation to the judging panel for the opportunity to win cash prizes.
