The Miclot Business Plan Competition
Thanks to an endowment by Andy and Sharlene Miclot of Winona Lake, IN, The Ron Rubin School for the Entrepreneur’s Miclot Business Plan Competition provides Culver students with a realistic competition requiring teamwork, collaboration, and field research, under the guidance of a mentor entrepreneur.
Any Culver student is eligible to compete in the Miclot Business Plan Competition.
A business plan includes a description of the product, company, or service and its market need. Competitive products, companies, or services are assessed, analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each competitor. The plan includes the unique selling propositions of the product or service, along with future growth and characteristics of the market.
How do I compete?
You may form a team or compete as an individual. No team may have more than 3 members. Each team must designate a “captain”, and have a mentor-entrepreneur. The mentor-entrepreneur must be an adult with actual business or entrepreneurial experience. A student competing alone must also have a mentor-entrepreneur.
