Last night, Ken Freirich, founder of the Freirich Business Plan competition at Skidmore College, visited campus to personally help budding entrepreneurs prepare for the competition. Ken was very pleased that there were so many students who showed up and impressed by the variety of ideas.
For those planning on entering the competition, Liz Worgan, Stella Langat, and Hanna Weaver are available to mentor you through the final stages of this first leg of the competition. You’ll need to drop them an email to set up a time that is mutually convenient. Roy Rotheim is also around to act as a sounding board, as well.
Dry runs will be held on Monday 2/22, Tuesday 2/23, and Wednesday 2/24, in the evening, during the week of the presentations. You’ll need to let Roy know whether you’re interested in participating in this activity.
There will be a dinner on Friday, February 26th, immediately following the announcement of the finalists for ALL participants and their families. It will probably be held in the Tang, as well, but more info on that later.
Remember, business plans are due to Roy (in a single .pdf) no later than NOON, Friday, February 19, 2016. Roy must have them by Noon so that he has enough time to print them out to send to those judges who want hard copies.
And Roy MUST have the Power Point presentations by no later than 9am on Friday the 26th!!!
