The Enterprise Competition is a business plan competition that "challenges Saint Michael's undergraduates to develop and market sustainable business plans to a panel of business leaders serving as competition judges." Plans are judged based on traditional criteria (feasibility, reasonableness of financing and forecasts, etc.), though the social purpose of the enterprise being proposed is also considered.
First prize is $5,000; second prize is $2,500; third prize is $1,000.
The competition takes place during the Spring semester and is open to all Saint Michael's students.
Once again, the 2013-14 Enterprise Plan Competition was a great success! This year, all student competitors received a copy of the newly published hard cover Enterprise Value: How the Best Owner-Managers Build Their Fortune, Capture Their Company's Gains, and Create Their Legacy by Peter Worrell '79 H'06.
