The School’s eighth annual Business Plan Contest proved that entrepreneurship is alive and well at HBS: Close to forty teams entered plans to be judged by a panel of experts. This year’s traditional track winner was Extend Fertility, Inc., a venture that allows women to prolong their fertility by freezing their eggs for later use. The first prize in the social enterprise track went to SunEdison, a company that facilitates the financing and installation of on-site solar-energy projects for commercial, institutional, and municipal customers.
