02/29/2004 - Hogan Competition Expands and Innovates

Gonzaga University's Hogan Entrepreneurial Program has a record twenty-seven teams entered in the 2003-2004 Business Plan Competition. In addition to their traditional "student business idea" category, Hogan has added two new categories to the competition. The new categories are "Community-Based Plans" and "Social Enterprise Plans."

The traditional student-generated idea category is for students who have an idea, research their idea, then write a solid business plan for a business based on that idea. First prize in this category is $10,000.

The community-based plans competition is for students who are working with entrepreneurs from the community. The idea may be generated by a student who is working with a non-student entrepreneur, or the idea may be generated by the entrepreneur. First prize in this category is $5,000.

The social enterprise plans competition is for students who are creating non-profits or are working with non-profits in the community. First prize in this category is $5,000.

The additional categories where an off-shoot of the New Venture Lab (NVL). The New Venture Lab is, in turn, an outgrowth of Hogan class, the Incubation Project. The NVL is a student-run "idea incubator" which now has nine clients from the community. Three of the clients came through the Incubation Project class. The NVL has teams of students who conduct research and feasibility analyses that may lead to the development of business plans. A major initiative this semester is to provide more support and structure for the NVL teams, including assigning a coach/advisor from the business community to each team. Six projects are under development in Incubation Project --- several of which are entered in the 2003 - 2004 Business Plan Competition.

Business plans are due on March 29. Finalist will be announced on April 9, and finalists will give oral presentations on April 16. The winners will be announced on April 23 at Gonzaga University.
