Business plan competition winners announced

The Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies announces the winners of this year’s business plan competition.

Erin Glorvigen was the first-place winner in the business majors division. His plan was titled “Backup-Your-Memories.”

Rebecca Sandager and Justyna Kujtkowska submitted the winning plan in the non-business major division. Their unique business was called “Mo’Data.” A total of $1,500 in prize money was distributed among the students who submitted plans in the contest.

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 University 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 is sponsoring a series of events later in April. Details on these events are available from Trevor Hall, director of the Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies.
