An online service that helps clubs and community groups organise events, manage volunteers and raise funds has won RMIT University’s prestigious 2009 Business Plan Competition.
The web-based business venture, ourevent.info, was awarded $30,000 in prizes at a gala awards ceremony in Melbourne on Wednesday night.
The annual RMIT Business Plan Competition is open to all RMIT students worldwide and encourages teams to create innovative businesses and ideas through the development of competitive business plans.
Team leader Paul Monks, said it was amazing to see the business start-up receive such high recognition from the many industry leaders who judged the Business Plan Competition.
“Winning has invigorated our enthusiasm to implement our concept, enter the market, survive and thrive,” he said.
RMIT vice-chancellor and president, Professor Margaret Gardner AO, said the competition was a chance for students to creatively apply their ingenuity and develop their business skills.
“The RMIT Business Plan Competition has supported student entrepreneurship for nine years and is one of the largest of its kind in Australia,” she said.
