Great post! I love biz plan comps and green ones are even better...

The two winners were:

* the firm that merchandises fair-trade gifts and accessories through kiosks in natural food stores, bookstores, women’s boutiques, and other venues, growing markets for globally sourced handicrafts from developing countries around the world.

* the market research firm targeting urban Hispanic youth, a growing but underserved market, by training and hiring Hispanic teens to conduct interviews, focus groups, and the like.

The fair-trade firm, called World of Goods, also won the SIA part of the competition.

So, both of these will go to the finals, held on April 15.

Great write up, Joel! As you know, I'm a student at Haas and am always glad to run into you at the many events we both attend. I wanted to let everyone know that the plans went on the final round of judging which was this past weekend and World of Good, the first plan of the two mentioned above, won the global finals - beating out plans all over the world submitted to all three schools. See www.socialvc.net for more information.
