Thirty-seven business plans were submitted for this year’s competition, reviewed by 36 judges from who met in this week for final deliberations. Teams were judged in several areas, including viability of their products / services; their proposed management teams; potential competitors in the marketplace; possible critical risks to their businesses; and financials, including proposed cash flows, income statements, a balance sheet, and funds required for startup / operation.
