The Company Corporation®, the nation’s leader in helping small businesses incorporate and form limited liability companies (LLCs), is pleased to honor the insight and creativity of U.S. military veteran Tony Beaman, winner of its most recent Business Plan Contest.

Entries for the contest’s next round are due by December 31, 2013. Visit https://www.incorporate.com/business_plan_contest.html for contest guidelines.

Tony Beaman’s winning business plan executive summary described ElitePrep U, a veteran-owned nonprofit company dedicated to training, mentoring, and educating U.S. veterans through direct contact with successful entrepreneurs, business leaders, and corporate managers and executives.

Beaman says his aspiration for ElitePrep U is to “become a partner and leader with other individuals, corporations and veterans groups in an effort to help veterans develop skills and strong leadership and entrepreneurship mindsets.” ElitePrep U participants would receive expert career counseling along with training on presentation skills, interview preparation, résumé assistance and professional profile development.

A veteran of the U.S. Army National Guard, Beaman is president and founder of Millennium Franchise Group and Fran4Vets (Franchising For Veterans), a certified veteran-owned small business through the Veterans Administration. He holds an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management and a BA in advertising/public relations journalism from the University of Arkansas. For his winning plan, The Company Corporation has awarded Beaman $1,000.

“Our panel of judges was impressed with the timeliness and vision behind Tony Beaman’s business plan,” said David Gilardi, general manager of The Company Corporation. “There is an acute need in the U.S. right now to provide training opportunities to our returning service men and women.
