Business Plan Competition
The 10th Annual Business Plan Competition
The Business Plan Competition takes place at the conclusion of both the fall and winter terms and recognizes innovative student business plans. The program was launched in 2010 and has quickly become a cornerstone of the Connolly Center for Entrepreneurship, helping students bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world.
Washington and Lee students and alumni have had the opportunity to rate each business plan. These ratings have been factored into those from the panel of 16 distinguished alumni judges, who evaluated each business in three areas: 1) the written business plan, 2) a personal consulting session, and 3) a virtual presentation.
And the winner is ...
During the live video announcement of the winners, on Friday, April 24, at 5:00 p.m. EST, technical difficulties prevented sound from congratulatory remarks by W&L trustee Helen Hughes Sanders '04, Williams School advisory board member Carol Dannelly O'Kelley '91, and entrepreneurship advisory board chairperson John Stump '91. Their remarks are presented below.
