BizGym was proud to be a title sponsor for Honolulu’s 2nd Annual Lemonade Alley competition on July 8, 2012. The event showcased kid teams age K-12 from around Hawaii in a head-to-head competition that tested their business and entrepreneurship skills. To enter Lemonade Alley, kids used BizGym’s FREE online business planning tools and submitted StoryTree 1-page business plans. Teams were also able to earn bonus points by completing the full business plan and using the financial modeler.
The competition took place to the theme of “A Yellow Carpet Event.” The film was rolling and camera flashes were dazzling as this year’s contestants pitched their ideas. Live kid bands played rock and roll music to keep the party going all day long and several lovely young ladies hula danced their way down the yellow carpet.
Together, the teams raised over $4000 to benefit nonprofit organizations. Winning teams received $1000 cash and were selected based on 5 judging criteria – business plan, 1-minute business pitch, booth design, taste test and sales.
BizGym awarded the “Best Business Plan” prize to the team with a full business plan that truly wowed the judges. BizGym honored the team with $250 cash and 1-year BizGym.co Pro Plan memberships to give them all-access to templates and tutorials, financial modelers and ability to download and print their data.
