Steve Brilling on the Annual Business Plan Competition

Posted by Amanda Kelly on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at 9:51 AM PDT

As an alum of Seattle U, you have a unique opportunity to continue to derive value from your University relationship through our Annual Business Plan Competition and Business Roundtables.  The Competition is open to alums as well as our current students. It essentially gives contestants a chance to “test drive” their idea, with the active support of the business community. We have $30,000 in prize money plus the ideas are exposed to potential investors—prior contestants have raised over $2million from this exposure.   The business roundtables—Executive and Next Generation—provide for peer-to-peer conversations with other business professionals as well as offer continual professional development. This  highly successful program has been helping business professionals run their company more effectively as well as provide assistance to the critical steps in succession planning.

Both the competition and roundtables are more fully described on our website: Entrepreneurship Center. I would be glad to take your call if you would like to participate or learn more.
