Spence WON the Thunderbird Entrepreneurship Contest tonight!!!
The contest started over a month ago with 36 entries. Phase 1 consisted of a one page explanation of your business plan. He sailed through that round along with 9 others. Phase 2 was a lot more tricky - it was a 30 page business plan with financial statements, profit projections, market research, etc. Last Friday night we found out he made it to the final round where you present to a panel of successful business executives, CEO's, and investors.
There were 5 other groups and they all did a great job, but Spence nailed it! He was fantastic. I am soooooooo proud of him. I love that whenever he puts his mind to something, he succeeds. He is so talented - what a guy. And a side note - we are a big fan of the monetary prize as well! LOL.
FYI - All the other groups wore business suits, but Spence took a risk and dressed like a farmer to create the setting of his business plan - the judges loved it!
