The Lake of the Ozarks SCORE Chapter is proud to introduce the Ralph Stonebraker Business Plan Award. This award was created to recognize outstanding business plans for start-up or newly formed businesses in our area. The purpose of this award is to raise awareness of the importance of a detailed business plan to the future success of a new business.
This competition is open to businesses located in Camden, Dallas, Hickory, Laclede, Miller, Morgan or Pulaski counties, and that have been in existence for two years or less, or for businesses that are just in the start-up phase. Business plans must be received no later than Aug. 30, to be considered for this award.
Business plans will be evaluated independently by a panel of five judges. The judges will select the top five plans, and then meet with those applicants for a face-to-face interview. The person submitting the best business plan will receive a $1,000 award; second place will receive a $500 award.
To receive an application form and a copy of the judges’ scoring criteria, please send an e-mail to StonebrakerBusinessPlan@yahoo.com.
Business plans can be submitted electronically to StonebrakerBusinessPlan@yahoo.com, sent to SCORE at PO Box 1375, Camdenton, MO 65020 or delivered to the SCORE office at the Camdenton Area Chamber of Commerce, 739 West US Hwy 54 in Camdenton.
