Competitions

If you are affiliated with UVA or Darden (student, alum, faculty, staff) you can now submit your entry into the Darden UVA Business Plan competition.  The final deadline is March 20th and the grand prize is $10,000.  At least one member of your team must have a UVA/Darden affiliation.  Good luck!

Also, please vote for my team (Fashion Forward) in the Dell Social Innovation Competition.  Registration is required to vote (”promote”) but I promise it’s painless!  Thanks!

EDIT: Vote for 2 other Darden Teams as well: TeleMed Africa & Clean India.  Thanks!

  • Bargaining and Negotiating
  • Innovation (mostly in healthcare)

Annnnd, that’s all I’ve got to say about that for now.  But, do check out the Cold Call Chronicle (Darden Student Newspaper) which is now online thanks to yours truly!
