About the Biz Plan Competition

The winners of the 2006 National Business Plan Competition have been chosen! Click here to read about their businesses and to see the list of Honorable Mention Award Winners.

Are you ready to give it a try? You've moved beyond lemonade stands and babysitting. You've got the talent and ideas to start a business but you're not ready to do it alone. Work with us! Enter the 2007 DollarDiva Business Plan Competition for teen women.

You do not have to start a business to win. You just need to show us a well thought-out vision and plan for a new business venture! We look for ambitious, unique, and exciting ideas. Remember, until you write it down, it's only a dream.

The Perks!

Three winners will receive:

  • $1,000 cash
  • A Camp $tart-Up scholarship
  • More prizes to be announced!

(Get Template) (At Camp $tart-Up, we encourage the business plan teams to create a power point presentation as well as a narrative version of their plan. For the purposes of this competition, we ask you to provide the full narrative.)

Other rules to consider:

  • Plans must be original. In other words, we won’t accept Plans that are a reworking of someone else’s business. Also, please do not submit Plans that you have entered in other competitions.
  • For the purposes of this competition, we ask that you not partner with anyone else. The Plan should be yours alone.
