    Event Description:
    You have a Business Idea
    You need some motivation to get your plan together
    What if you only had 24 hours?
    And could win prizes?

    The Green Flag Mesa Program, in association with the Mesa Chamber of Commerce and Mesa Community College, invite you to join us for the inaugural 24 hour business plan challenge. You have heard of 24 hour film challenges, well, this is the business plan alternative.

    Competitors are given a "Competition Packet" at 6pm Friday, October 25 and are given 24 hours to complete all the items and create a compelling business plan to turn in by 6pm on Saturday, October 26th.

    Get the Knowledge to Succeed. . .
    Encompassing business experts from the Chamber including bankers, experienced business owners and planning assistance, competitors will have 24 hours to compile a completed business plan based on the "Mission Packet" each team receives at the start of the challenge.

    Competing "Teams" can be made up of an individual or a team working on the same business plan.

    Open All Night . . .
    Green Flag will be open through the night of the 25th, allowing competitors to work unabated on their plan. On site will be the "Motivation Theater" with various videos and presentations designed to keep teams excited and motivated.

    Organizers will post several Facebook Live check-ins through the night (careful not to reveal any ideas) to share progress of on-site teams.

    And in the End . . .
    Completed plans are due at 6pm, Saturday, October 26, and will be turned over to a panel of judges for review. The winner will be announced at an event the following week.
