Since 2001, Marquette’s Business Plan Competition has spawned hundreds of business plans, and many entrants have started successful enterprises.  2013 was the inaugural year of ImpactNext, an updated format designed to be beneficial to entrepreneurs in any stage of their business model planning. 

TSL recently participated in and competed against 23 challengers at Marquette University's Impact Next competition. The judges then determined the top five finalists (not  necessarily  category winners) who delivered one- to two-minute pitches to the judges and the audience.   

That Salsa Lady won in both the Alumni and Overall Best Business Model categories; TSL was also awarded a cash prize.
