We’re excited about the ideas submitted by entrepreneurs and small business owners from the Kansas City community and across the country. Many of them have the potential to realize the American dream and become thriving, successful companies.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) March 1, 2011
Nicholson Kovac has announced the top 20 quarter-finalists in “The Last Plan Standing” competition. Video submissions from the quarter-finalists are available for viewing at http://www.lastplanstanding.com and the public can vote until midnight on March 20 to determine which entries will compete in the semi-finals.
“The Last Plan Standing” competition is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for entrepreneurs and small business owners to win an integrated marketing communications campaign worth up to $100,000 to launch their business. By submitting their own one-minute videos, entrepreneurs had the chance to explain why their new product or service is relevant and ingenious, and it should be deemed worthy as “The Last Plan Standing.” Quarter-finalists were judged based on the relevance and viability of their idea and not the production value of their videos.
“We’re excited about the ideas submitted by entrepreneurs and small business owners from the Kansas City community and across the country,” said Pete Kovac, president and CEO. “Many of them have the potential to realize the American dream and to become thriving, successful companies. We’re thrilled that America can now vote to decide which of them moves on in the competition.”
The videos with the most votes will move on to the semi-finals and those contestants will be asked to submit further information about their product or idea. A panel of Nicholson Kovac professionals and area business leaders will review and narrow the field to the Top Three.
The Top Three contestants will present their idea and business plan to a panel of judges and the winner will be determined based on the panel’s input and votes by followers. Nicholson Kovac then will conduct a live webcast to announce the winner of “The Last Plan Standing,” who will receive a fully integrated marketing communications campaign for their new business venture.
