The Tri-College Business Presentation Competition was designed by Dr. Jianli Hu, Professor of Business Administration and Head of the Business Presentation Planning Committee at Cerritos College.
The idea is to help students learn how to present business ideas in front of established entrepreneurs, business experts, professionals and community leaders.
Participants must submit a 1-2 minute presentation or YouTube video. Other requirements include a description of the product or business, an explanation of how the business will serve its target market, and a marketing and promotion plan.
You should make sure to include a summary of the financial plan. Each participant must also be enrolled in one of the three participating colleges.
At the end of the event, professors and judges advised participants as they progress towards their entrepreneurial goal.
Gary Schoeniger, contest judge and founder of Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative, told students they should recognize that they are already ahead.
“You shouldn’t focus on the opinions of the teachers. But you should always listen to the opinions of the people whose problems you are trying to solve, ”he said.
Cecilia Gorman, a 20-year veteran in the advertising industry, and Sheila Johnston, with over 20 years in government relations, were also judges of the competition.
This year’s competition was sponsored by ACG Funding and Marcella Apodaca Photography LLC.
Participants from fourth to ninth place will receive a $ 50 electronic gift card for their presentations and participation in the program.
