Murray State University’s Regional Business and Innovation Center (RBIC) was a sponsor of the inaugural Christian County EI2 Business Plan Competition earlier this month. The winner of the contest was announced at the Christian County Chamber of Commerce annual dinner.
Business plan presentations were given to a panel of expert judges who chose three finalists. The winner, Tangy Roots Frozen Yogurt, received a cash prize and support services for business start-up costs. Other finalists were In Fitness Wellness Center and Cake Box.
“We were very pleased with the quality of the entries we received in the inaugural year of this contest. All finalists displayed a tremendous amount of work and thought in developing their plans,” said Loretta Daniel, director of the RBIC at MSU. “Each business has the potential to grow into a valuable job creator for Christian County.”
The EI2 Business Plan Competition promotes entrepreneurial activity and greater awareness of the resources available to grow entrepreneurs in Christian County, and offers prizes for the best new venture plan to be located in that county.
