A record number of people submitted entries to the 10th annual Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest by the Jan. 31 deadline.

Business plan concepts came from 296 people, up from the previous record of 287 in 2009. They submitted a total of 326 proposals and represented 106 Wisconsin communities.

First-round judging begins this week, with more than 70 judges participating. About 50 plans will move to the second phase in late February. Finalists will present their plans at the Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference in Middleton, June 4-5.

The competition is organized by the Wisconsin Technology Council.
