Young Business Mogul?

Brampton - Because of the overwhelming success of last year's competition, the Brampton Small Business Enterprise Centre is proud to present BizPlan 2007, an exciting business plan competition for high school students in Brampton and Caledon.

The competition gives 14- to 20-year-olds an excellent opportunity to showcase their entrepreneurial talents and strengthen their business skills through writing a business plan. "Creative, technical, retail or service, your original business concept is limited only by your imagination!" said Kelly Ballinger with the Small Business Enterprise Centre.

The BizPlan 2007 Competition will help develop the business, research, communication and networking skills of Brampton's future entrepreneurs. Before writing their business plan, students are encouraged to consult the Small Business Enterprise Centre, the Brampton Library, teachers and professionals. Competition rules, regulations and guidelines are available online at under the special programs section of the web page.

Students should submit their business plans to Electronic versions of the final business plans must be received at the centre by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, May 25, 2007. A panel of judges comprised of local professionals and economic development practitioners will thoroughly evaluate each business plan.

At the local level, the first place winner will receive the Grand Prize sponsored by the Bramalea City Centre – a $2,000 "Business Style" prize package that includes the services of a professional image consultant and a new business wardrobe. The entrepreneur who receives honourable mention will be awarded a one-year City of Brampton student Fitness Pass.

The winner would then be eligible to compete at the Regional Business Plan Competition.
