The Annual Silverman Business Plan Competition, open exclusively to Simmons School of Management MBA alumnae and current students, is designed to support women in launching innovative and successful ventures with impact.
Participants build competence and confidence as they compete for $10,000 in cash PLUS additional in-kind prizes. Finalists of the competition receive one-on-one coaching from seasoned entrepreneurs and executives as well as access to the vast Simmons network of venture capitalists, angel investors, bankers and lawyers to move their ventures forward.
The School of Management thanks Lois Silverman, founder of CRA Managed Care (now Concentra Managed Care), and founding chair of The Commonwealth Institute, for her generous gift and support, which makes the Silverman Business Plan Competition possible. We are also appreciative of the MBA Class of 2002 for their generous support of this business plan initiative.
