Winners of the 2015 Hospitality Business Plan Competition
Every year, the Hospitality Business Plan Competition gives teams of Cornell students the opportunity to develop business concepts and enter them in a competition. The top three teams receive sponsored cash prizes ($15,000, $5,000, and $2,500) to help fund and actually launch their businesses.
This year's five finalist teams made their final presentations to a panel of judges on March 21 as part of Hotel Ezra Cornell. Modern Market took home the grand prize, with BrewMe and RedHead Wine coming in second and third.
Some of the concepts are already "real businesses," and regardless of where they placed in the competition, many others represent viable ideas that could conceivably reach market.
As a Cornell alumnus/alumna or friend, you save $125.00 with Promo Code CIHLER on the only conference on how to use your HR strategy to drive organization-wide success.Read more »
