Students' business plan judged a winner

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

Two UAA students, Tracey Wood and Julia Martin, were among winners in the 2007 Alaska Pacific Business Plan Competition, results of which were announced last month. Wood and Martin finished in 5th place for their plan for a proposed company, ReFeathering, a home-and-office staging and design business. They were in the minority of contest entrants, those who submitted a plan for an actual business, according to Wood.

ReFeathering opened its doors on December 1.

The competition, in its 5th year, is organized jointly by UAA, the Alaska Pacific University Business Administration Dept., and APU's MBA program.

College students as well as community members competed for prize money and the honor of being judged to have the best business plans for the year. After preliminary screening, the finalists competed by making a 15-minute presentation in front of a panel of six judges who were from local banks, investment firms and companies.

Seven MBA students from Alaska Pacific University took the first four places.
