The PowerUP! Competition offers classes in writing, researching and creating the financials for a business plan. All participants are required to take three of the four classes offered. The Financial Projections Class is mandatory. Even if you participated in previous years, you MUST follow this rule.

All team members may attend the classes and all may attend all four classes. Due to limited space, please do not attend the same class more than once.

In addition to attending class, you are required to complete a short evaluation.  After attending a class, fill out the appropriate online evaluation in the Classes & Consultation Round of Review Room. 

The PowerPoint presentations made for each class will be available online after the class has met.
