Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) April 19, 2013
To encourage future industry leadership and private-practice ownership, The Academy of Doctors of Audiology is currently accepting submissions to its 2013 Business Plan Competition. As one of the hearing healthcare industry’s leading private-practice advocates, EarQ will serve as the competition’s chief sponsor.
Open to ADA third and fourth year students, the competition requires applicants to submit a written business plan. Finalists will receive an all-expense paid trip to the ADA 2013 Annual Convention at the Hyatt Coconut Point Resort in Bonita Springs, FL on November 8-10. There, they will present their business plans in-person.
The plans will be judged by a panel of industry professionals, including Keith Lewis, vice president of business development for ReSound, on their creativity, feasibility, completeness, cohesiveness, professionalism and polish. The grand prize winner will receive a $5,000 ADA cash grant to be used to develop their business objectives and skills in order to strengthen their ability to help more people overcome hearing loss.
Applicants must state their intent to compete by April 30th and written business plans must be submitted by July 5th.
In addition to its sponsorship responsibilities, EarQ will also supply two representatives to sit on the judging panel: Andrew Hebert, managing director of the company, and Sally Baerman, Au.D., owner of Bridgewater Balance & Hearing, the exclusive EarQ provider based in Knoxville, TN.
