High Growth Division

Which one of these is out of place in this list? Teamwork. Innovation. High growth concepts. Cash prizes totaling $114,000. The Las Vegas Strip.

The Answer: None of the above. They all help sum up the High Growth Division of the Donald W. Reynolds Governor’s Cup business plan competition.

Form your team, write the plan and pitch your concept for your share of $114,000 in cash awards and scholarships. The top two teams in both the Graduate and Undergraduate divisions advance to compete for $118,000 in additional cash prizes in the Tri-State competition in Las Vegas.
