Venture Adventure

Earlier this spring JuniorBiz, LLC was chosen as 1 of the 16 teams (out of over 30 teams that applied) to participate in the 9th annual Venture Adventure Business Plan Competition. No CSU team had ever won and I was sure I was going to be the first… but I didn’t even make it out of the first round.

Why was losing a good experience for me?

This JJ Entry is coming a little late this week, and for that I am sorry. Week 7 of the Project Charter was chock-full of deadlines that couldn’t be pushed back as easily as my weekly JJ update. Overall, there was lots of editing and little Internet marketing.

Week 6 of the JuniorBiz Project Charter has come and gone. The highlight of the week was being featured on a radio show with the former mayor of Fort Collins, Ray Martinez. Trevor Trout, Traver Heckman and I also had the honor of being on the show on a very special day for Ray, his birthday!

I’ll go into more detail about the show in the 5th objective. During the rest of the week I was busy with the other 4 objectives of the project charter.

On Wednesday, March 4th, I received some very exciting news! JuniorBiz was accepted to compete in the 2009 Colorado State University Venture Adventure Business Plan Competition. As far as I know there will be 16 teams competing for a top prize of $5000! The competition will take place on April 17th and 18th in the College of Business at CSU.

Needless to say, I would love to have people come and watch. If you’re interested, you should let me know and I can provide more information. The excitement aside, I still needed to move towards my objectives for the week.
