The Junior Chamber International –Manila Chapter (JCI-Manila) expects the best next green idea to come out from its Best Business Plan Competition for 2009. The competition, an annual flagship project of JCI-Manila, is for promising and aspiring entrepreneurs who can present “practical, bold, imaginative and cutting-edge plans that seek solutions, involve risk-taking, and re-assess what is feasible.”

With this year’s theme “Green Works, Green Minds,” the JCI-Manila seeks “GREEN” or environment-friendly business plans for the conception of a new enterprise, endeavor or social activity that can create positive change.  At stake are over PHP 400,000 pesos worth of prizes. The winner will also have a chance to participate in the Best Business Plan of the World Competition, which will culminate in the JCI World Congress in Tunis, Tunisia.

For the last 5 years, the Philippines has been the consistent winner in JCI’s Best Business Plan of the World Competition, besting thousands of entries from around the world.
