Krista Bannan is tops in Business Plan Competition
Krista’s was one of about 30 entries from Northwestern Ontario that were evaluated by volunteer judges from the business community. The plans were evaluated on the basis of viability, creativity and needs to be fully complete.
Krista developed her plan in Mr. Beatty’s Entrepreneurship class. Her plan had her taking her sewing experience and providing after school lessons for kids.
According to Mike Greaves, the competition aims to “give students an idea about business planning, and encourage them to consider business planning or entrepreneurship as a career.”
Krista will now take her entry to Thunder Bay, where she will compete against other Northern Ontario regional winners for more prizes and the chance to compete provincially.
The competition runs on a yearly basis, with entries for this year’s contest due in June.
