Chaminade's will launch Hogan Entrepreneurial Non-Profit Business Plan Competition
The Hogan/American Savings Bank Non-Profit Business Plan Competition at Chaminade University is open to non-profit organizations planning to start new ventures that will benefit society. Thanks to generous contributions from American Savings Bank, the Ulupono Initiative, and Olomana Loomis ISC, prizes offered are $10,000 for first place; $6,000 for second place; $4,000 for third place; $2,000 for fourth place; and $1,000 for all remaining finalists.
The business plan that is the "Most Compelling" will be awarded 80 hours of consulting services for Olomana Loomis ISC. The deadline to submit business plans is March 6, and the winners will be announced on April 18. For full competition details, call Ann Lujan Kishi at 808-739-4673. Information is also available at http://www.chaminade.edu/hogan/hogan-7.php.
"This competition is especially important in light of recent news that many Hawai'i nonprofits have been scaling back or shutting down operations due to cuts in funding. It is a tough time for nonprofits, and it seems like the pool of grant money is drying up," said Hogan Program director, John Webster, PhD. "But thanks to our generous contributors, the Hogan Entrepreneurial Program will be looking for new programs that best embody its mission of 'doing social things that make business sense, as it conducts its 5th Non-Profit Business Plan Competition."

ABOUT HOGAN FAMILY FOUNDATION
This program is designed to equip students to hit the ground running when they leave Chaminade, with new skills, extensive connections, and the mind set to start new things wherever their careers may lead them.
Contributing to Society
Open to all majors and undergraduates as well as graduate students, (not just business majors,) we recognize that any graduate has the potential to start something new. New ideas that contribute to society and the well-being of communities benefit everyone, but also can make for successful, thriving businesses. This is the variety of entrepreneurial spirit we cultivate in our program. Our motto is "Doing business things that make social sense. Doing social things that make business sense."
Learning the Life and Culture of the Entrepreneur
In this program, students learn first-hand from experienced Hawai'i business leaders and entrepreneurs about the business of getting a new idea up and running. This involves:
- Academic coursework
- Carefully chosen mentorships and internships with seasoned business leaders
- Attendance at our weekly lecture series
- Broadening horizons by study trips to other locales, such as our trips to China
- Broadening perspectives, contributing to the community and honing people skills through community service
- An opportunity to participate in planning an actual venture with our non-profit business plan competition
The Hogan Program is a 1 year or 2 year certificate program.
"Funded by generous contributions from The Hogan Family Foundation, this is a practical program that provides in-depth learning through contact with Hawaii's entrepreneurs. The small class size is designed to provide careful nurturing. We aim to prepare students to start and do new things--wherever their careers may lead them." -- Dr. John Webster
