Golden Horseshoe Business Challenge Tomorrow

May 31st, 2007 · 1 Comment

Big day for me and HealthSpoke tomorrow. Because we finished in 2nd place at the LaunchPad competition, we get to go on to compete in the Golden Horseshoe Business Challenge. The event is taking place in Rochester, NY, and the winner will take home a cool $100,000 in cash to start their business! The event features the top two teams four business plan competitions, held in Waterloo, Buffalo, Ithica and Rochester.

Because we came in 2nd, HealthSpoke has to present in a semi-final round with the other 2nd place finishers. The top team from this round will advance to the finals in the afternoon to compete for the $100,000 with the four 1st place teams.

Just to make things even more fun, CBET has booked us on a chartered plane to head down in the morning. So, we get to fly out of Waterloo airport on a nice little six-seater plane!! How’s that for red-carpet treatment?

It should be a great experience and I am excited for the event no matter what happens! Check back tomorrow to see how we do!
