School: St Edwards College
Business Plan: Men in Black: Holiday and Pet Care Pty Ltd

Brendan’s witty business plan describes his vision for a comprehensive at home service for people with pets and/or vacant holiday homes. Having thoroughly analysed the demographic of his local coastal area, Brendan is confident that his services would be in great demand. Offering pet walking/feeding, garden maintenance, mail retrieval and cleaning, Men in Black would provide peace of mind to its customers; knowing that their pets were well cared for and their home secure and clean.

Division Three Australasian Winners

Jack Beardsley
David Emms
Ben Jones

School: The Hutchins School
Business Plan: Tasmanian Helicopter Services

Having contemplated the successful helicopter tours on offer in New Zealand, this team quickly identified a business opportunity for Hobart. Tasmanian Helicopter Services would provide scenic flights across Tasmania, tourist transport to resorts across the State, remote picnic sites, bushwalking destinations and simple drop offs/pick ups. Researching alternative sources of finance (commercial and local government) and making real enquiries with Helicopter manufacturers and aviation authorities, this team has produced a believable and encouraging business plan.
