MBA in Sustainability Students at AUNE Present Business Plans

First-year MBA in Sustainability students at Antioch University New England (AUNE) will present their business plans for socially responsible enterprises on Sunday, April 22, in AUNE’s Community Room. The public is welcome to attend. The presentations begin at 8:45 a.m. and continue through 2:45 p.m., with an hour break for lunch.

Each of six teams will take a half-hour to present its business idea, including a discussion of the business need, an overview of the market, the social impacts, and the expected financial performance. The business ideas to be presented are:
The Owens Farm Project, a turnaround plan for an existing farm
Suds, a laundromat focusing on sustainable water usage
PIO, online children’s’ books focusing on the principles of sustainability
ReVine, recycling and re-using wine bottles
Owl’s Eye Brewing Company, a microbrewery focusing on locally sourced ingredients and community involvement
Sun Harvest, arranging solar power systems for apartment dwellers in New York City.

After the presentations there will be a question-and-answer period to discuss the ideas in more depth. The teams will be evaluated by a panel of judges made up of businesspeople from the Keene area: Roy Matheson, president of Matheson System; Bob Elliott of Monadnock Economic Development; and Wink Faulkner, president of Logopak.
