We are thinking about focusing some effort on this award and were wondering if any of the teams who have won it in the past would be willing to share their business plan or how they presented it at competitions.
Also, any teams planning to do it this year are you going to use the FIRST template for the business plan or create your own?
Check the CD-Media for keywords “Business Plan”, i believe there are several posted here.
You don’t necessarily have to use FIRST’s template. We have had a business plan, which helped us to win our Entre. awards. Now that it is a requirement, I think it is important to ensure your team stands out. Be sure to include WHY you run your team like a business.
Hope that helps!
