Rice Business Plan Competition Kicks-Off Thursday

by | Apr 13, 2009 | Community Circle

The Rice Business Plan Competition kicks off Thursday morning.  Things are a little different for me as a judge this year.  I will be still sitting in on one of the flights, but will not turn in any scores on the teams.  I am the one who will be tabulating all of the results for each flight during the competition. In order to stay independent, I won’t be live blogging like I have in years past.  Below is the competition schedule:
