What’s better than young entrepeneurs creating their own innovative growth strategy? THRIVE CEO & Co-Founder Jonathan Dalton will be joining a distinguished panel of judges that includes Karen Houghton, the Director of Atlanta Tech Village; Jason Carne, Co-Founder of ParkPic and Brett Copper and Richardson Markerson, Co-Founders of BlueFletch to judge the Youth Entrepreneurs of Georgia Annual Business Plan competition.

Annual Business Plan Competition for Youth Growth Strategy

The annual Business Plan Competition represents the culmination of hard work from our students, alumni, and Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR). Students present their innovative business ideas, growth strategy, and prototypes during the competition. Winners receive start-up funds to launch their business. This year’s event will take place at Atlanta Tech Village on September 29, 2016. Sponsors will receive a special invitation to a VIP reception prior to the event. Find more details here: CLICK!

We look forward to seeing you all on September 29th!
