YEP Business Plan Competition Winners Announced

Category : News

Congratulations to the winners of the 2013 YEP Business Plan Competition! The winning plans were submitted by Harvey Williams, Robert Zaragoza, and Greta Wilson and the Reel Delicious team at High Tech High San Diego.

Harvey, a veteran and current student at Phoenix University, submitted a plan for a delivery service that will start with local food delivery and branch out to delivery of other items as it grows. Harvey is very determined to get this business, called Premium Rush, up and running within the few months and is currently working on developing the mobile app that customers will use to access his service.

Robert, a fitness buff, submitted a plan for a gym called Total Fitness that would cater to both youth and adults and feature video game based excercise. This business has always been a dream of Roberto’s and he plans to start a smaller business to help him raise the capital needed for his dream project.

Greta and her classmates submitted a plan for a food truck that will feature movies playing on screens outside of the truck, hence the name Reel Delicious. This started out as a class project that is quickly turning into reality. The students have been able to successfully raise $35,000 through Kickstarter for their business and are about to purchase their first food truck and equipment.

The winners of this year’s business plan competition received a prize package that included an iPad Mini, free workshop attendance, PR assistance, and other services and resources designed to help them launch and manage their businesses.
