The 13th Annual Miami Herald Business Plan Challenge is shaping up to be another exciting opportunity to showcase South Florida’s vibrant entrepreneurial spirit.
We received 222 entries, including food products, fashion accessories, pet ideas, plenty of eco-friendly products and services and lots and lots of apps.
Our judges had their work cut out for them.
Many of the entries were product pitches rather than business plans — they lacked financials, a marketing strategy, even the basics on the business model. No matter how interesting the business idea is, if the entry only included a pitch about the product, it could not win.
Today, we announce the semifinalists in all three tracks. On May 2, find out who the finalists and People’s Pick contenders will be. Winners will be unveiled May 16.
