Muriel and David Hinkle '76 Entrepreneurship Competition - 2013
The Law School is now accepting entries for the annual Muriel and David Hinkle ’76 Entrepreneurship Competition. The Hinkle Endowment provides a cash prize to a current Law School student who may use that prize to launch a business. The Hinkles founded their successful business, Sonalysts, while David Hinkle was an evening division student at the Law School.
This year’s cash prize is $5,900. We will award the prize to the Law School student who submits the best business plan. While the donors prefer to award the prize to an evening student, all students may apply. (Past winners have included both day and evening students).
The plan should explain the business to prospective investors, including how and when the business will produce revenues, and why the business has a realistic chance of success. We recommend that the plans also include an estimated budget showing such items as projected costs and revenues. Students may wish to consult a guide on drafting business plans before making their submissions.
Since the Hinkle Endowment aims to fund entrepreneurial students while they are still in school, only currently enrolled students may submit plans.
To be eligible, a submitted plan must not exceed 5 pages.
Please submit proposals by e-mail to Associate Professor Sachin S. Pandya (firstname.lastname@example.org) before midnight on April 6, 2013 with a duplicate copy to Professor Jennifer Mailly (Jennifer.email@example.com).
The winner must send an acknowledgement letter, together with his or her business plan, to the donors. We will invite the winner to receive the award on Prize Day, May 18, 2013.
