Good Neighbor Pharmacy NCPA Pruitt-Schutte Student Business Plan Competition
DEVELOP YOUR INNER ENTREPRENEUR
To promote interest in independent community pharmacy ownership, the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) and the NCPA Foundation have established the Good Neighbor Pharmacy NCPA Pruitt-Schutte Student Business Plan Competition. The goal of the Competition is to motivate student pharmacists to create the blueprint necessary for buying an existing independent community pharmacy or developing a new pharmacy. Through this competition, NCPA is better able to prepare tomorrow's pharmacy entrepreneurs for a successful future.
The Business Plan Competition is the first national competition of its kind in the pharmacy profession and is named to honor two great champions of independent pharmacy, the late Neil Pruitt, Sr., and the late H. Joseph Schutte. The Pruitt and Schutte families initiated an endowment fund with the NCPA Foundation to help support annual operating expenses of the Competition. The Competition is supported by Good Neighbor Pharmacy, Pharmacists Mutual, and the NCPA Foundation.
Sample Business Plan: Western University, as part of a grant from the NCPA Foundation, developed a sample Pharmacy Management Course for pharmacy students including this sample business plan.
