The purpose of the Overview is to provide a vision for the proposed venture, including the business concept, target customers, industry overview, competitive landscape and revenue potential. This submission is not intended to be as comprehensive as a detailed business plan, but should provide the reader with a summary of the major elements of the proposed venture. An outline of key concepts to include in the Overview may be viewed here.
The Public Summary provides a very brief description of the proposed venture which may be distributed to the public. The Gigot Center may use this information for promotional purposes (press releases) so it is critical that it does not contain any confidential information. Be sure to include your team name and the names of each team member at the top of the public summary.
These 2 elements will be combined as one 3-page document, with the Public Summary as page 1 and the Overview as pages 2-3. DOCUMENT MUST BE SAVED AS A .PDF FILE.
A detailed explanation of the requirements for the Overview and Public Summary are provided by clicking on the Document Guidelines tab to the right under Round 1 Submissions.
