HONOLULU — The Pacific Asian Center for Entrepreneurship & E-Business (PACE) is accepting registrations for the 2008 UH Business Plan Competition from January 14 through February 15, 2008. The Competition is an intense, fun and potentially lucrative project. Winners walk away with thousands in cash prizes; not to mention priceless opportunities to network and pursue a business idea.

Visit www.UHBusinessPlanCompetition.com for team eligibility and entry criteria. Questions about the Competition may be directed to PACE at (808) 956-5083 or pace@hawaii.edu.

The UH Business Plan Competition was originally started in 1999 by former College of Business Dean David McClain, who now serves as President of the University of Hawaii. Administered by PACE, the Competition has grown into the State's largest competition of its kind with the support of friends in Hawaii's business community.

The goals of the UH Business Plan Competition are to 1) get business leaders involved as coaches to build a support network for entrepreneurship that includes entrepreneurs, seasoned managers, professionals, and investors; 2) create new companies each year by encouraging students with business ideas to move them from concept to action and implementation; and 3) help companies to start and grow businesses here and to attract and retain the talented people who are the backbone of an entrepreneurial economy.
