Triple Toe Turkey Calls Wins 1st Place in Business Plan Competition

We are pleased to announce that Marywood University's Team Triple Toe Turkey Calls won 1st place the the Great Valley Technology Alliance Entrepreneur Institute Business Plan Competition. The Team comprised of Richard Powers, Masters in BioTechology Program, Richard Satyavrata, Masters in Business Administration and Jonathan Bieler, Undergraduate in Business Management.

The Competition was held at the University of Scranton on February 10th and 11th and concluded at Wilkes University on February 18 where 20 teams competed for the top position. The Team Advisor and Mentor for this project was Dr. Chris Speicher, who teaches Business and Entrepreneurship at Marywood.

Triple Toe Turkey Calls, LLC. is a entrepreneurial venture that customizes turkey calls using laser engraving and web based custom / personalized design and sales features to an estimated 980,000 turkey hunters in United States.

The Entrepreneurship Institute is a free, three-day program where participants learn how to think innovatively through quality brainstorming, and how to turn an idea into a viable project. The ‘teachers’ do not come from the classrooms, but are instead local success stories from NEPA with extensive business experience. These entrepreneurs know what it’s like to start up a company and what it takes to be successful in life. On the final day of the Institute, teams present their big idea to a panel of judges and awards are  given to the winning teams.

Grad student Richard Powers, founder of Triple Toe Turkey Calls, recently appeared on Pennsylvania Outdoor Life. Gobble, gobble!
