Kabara elevator pitch winners announced

The Kabara Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies announced that John Fitzpatrick, Kyle Johnson, Michael Lunka, Timothy Smith and Ryan Wagner were each awarded a $100 prize in the recent Elevator Pitch Competition.  Smith is a philosophy major; the other winners are business majors.

Contestants created an idea for a business or an organization and had 90 seconds (the length of an average elevator ride) to convince a panel of judges that the idea was a worthwhile investment. Judges considered the feasibility and creativity of the idea and the enthusiasm and professionalism of the presentation when awarding the prizes.

The Kabara Institute is currently presenting a series of three workshops to help students create business plans. The deadline to enter the annual Business Plan Competition is March 21.  Questions about the competition can be directed to Teresa Speck at Ext.1449.
