About

Forza Financial hosted its first annual business plan competition for local high school students in April 2017. The event served as an educational opportunity to future entrepreneurs, as well as an initiative to spread the word about the company and its mission. 

We asked students to submit a formal business plan, based on the outline we created, and give a live pitch about a hypothetical business idea of their own creation. In the first installment, we were extremely pleased with the energy and creativity of the students. After the success of the 2017 competition, we decided to continue the tradition in 2018 and again in 2019. The third annual Forza Financial Business Plan Competition will take place on April 7th of this year.
