Vision as a Guiding Light

We define EntreVision as the entrepreneurial spirit and vision that it takes to sustain and grow a business.

A vision statement is a guiding light. It is more than an elevator pitch...though it does a good job at that too! It reminds us of why we do what we do on our toughest days.

In a word or phrase, what makes your startup or new idea stand out?

Executive Summary

This is your time to wow us! Grab our attention. Compel us to desire more. The executive summary is the most critical part of a business plan. It is the foundation for all that is to come and presents the best opportunity to pitch your problem-solving idea (...outside of being face-to-face that is! Hopefully, we'll get that opportunity as well!).

Each executive summary should be unique and focus on the areas that are most important to your business success. Whether you are a startup or expanding business in the for-profit or non-profit industry, these are some of the elements we would like to see: your mission/vision, business description, background/story, product/service overview, market analysis, business model, financial projections, risks, team/partners and organizational plan. Your executive summary may not have all of these components right now. Our advice? Take a deep breath and give us your best. Be sure to address the problem, solution, and why now. Share how your company will make a difference (platform, cause or some element of the business that seeks to do good, make a positive and measurable impact). All entries should strike a commercial and social balance.

Be clever, clear and concise. The executive summary should be no more than three pages. Have fun!

Supplemental Materials

If you have any supporting materials for your application, upload them here or send them to the address below. It is highly recommended for you to include a link to an externally hosted Video Pitch (ex. YouTube or Vimeo). This will help our judges understand your innovation, how it works, and your passion for it. With your consent (see below), we will share your video during our People's Choice Award competition on social media.
