Brey and Dahlstrom winners of Kabara business plan

The Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s business plan competition, D.J. Brey and David Dahlstrom. Their plan, “Sugar Loaf Scouting Combine,” earned them the $1,000 prize for first place in the competition.

Brey is a junior sport management major from St. James, Minn., and Dahlstrom is a junior accounting and human resources management major from Rochester, Minn.

The Kabara Institute aims to incite a passion for entrepreneurial spirit in students across the university, regardless of their major field of study, to enhance the entrepreneurship program offerings at Saint Mary’s by providing opportunities for students to interact with entrepreneurs and experience entrepreneurship first-hand, and to foster a greater understanding and appreciation of the importance of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship in our society.

The Kabara Institute has sponsored a series of guest speakers and company tours during this academic year. Look for more events, including another competition, during the 2009 – 2010 academic year.
