As an entrepreneur, I understand the importance of taking risks, putting in the work, and never giving up on your dreams. In 2020, I competed in the New York Business Plan Competition as a student entrepreneur with my startup dooProcess. It was an exciting and challenging experience that taught me valuable lessons about entrepreneurship and perseverance.
Fast forward to today, and I am proud to announce that I have been selected as a judge for this year's competition. It's a full circle moment for me, and I couldn't be more excited to be involved in the tournament again, but this time in a different capacity.
As a former competitor, I understand the challenges and rewards of starting a business. I know the long hours, sleepless nights, and the feeling of uncertainty that comes with taking a leap of faith to pursue your passion. But I also know the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that comes from turning your dreams into a reality.
As a judge, I am excited to see the innovative ideas and entrepreneurial spirit that this year's competitors will bring to the table. I know the dedication and hard work that goes into building a business, and I am eager to see the fruits of their labor.
The NY Business Plan Competition is not just a competition; it's an opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs to showcase their ideas, connect with like-minded individuals, and learn from experienced professionals. As a former competitor and now a judge, I can attest to the value and impact of this competition.
To entrepreneurs - Don't let fear hold you back from pursuing your dreams. Take the risk, put in the work, and never give up.
In conclusion, being selected as a judge for this year's NY Business Plan Competition is a full circle moment for me. It's an opportunity to give back to the competition that helped shape me as an entrepreneur and to inspire the next generation of business leaders. I can't wait to see what the future holds for these talented individuals, and I'm honored to be a part of their journey.
