Re: [Channel-talkeconomics] Workshop 8 Growth & Entrepreneurship
I know that PA council of economic education sponsors a business plan
competition each year. I assume that all the states do this. You might
contact your state's council. I went to a training a few years ago on the
competition. I did it one year but it was too time consuming as my economics
course is only two quarters. The binder of materials leads you right through
the process and the training was excellent.
I also stopped doing it because the following year, we added an
Entreprenuership course in the business department. That teacher actually
has students present their completed plans before a panel of real bank
representatives and they give the students feedback as to what they look for
in the real world. he does a really nice job with this. His course is a full
year and the business plan is an ongoing project
