EarQ champions independent practice success by again sponsoring the ADA Student Business Plan Competition and highlighting its inventive business and marketing resources at the 2015 Academy of Doctors of Audiology Convention in Washington, D.C.
Washington, D.C. (November 17, 2015)—For the third consecutive year, the EarQ team celebrated the bright future of independent hearing healthcare practice ownership at the Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA) Convention in Washington, D.C.
EarQ again sponsored the ADA Student Business Plan Competition in an effort to foster and encourage an entrepreneurial spirit among audiology students and help guide them along the path to successful practice ownership.
Judged on their creativity, feasibility, completeness, cohesiveness, professionalism and polish, the business plans were evaluated by a panel of industry experts. The grand prize winners, Mark Moore and Sarah Obarowski of University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, received a $5,000 ADA cash grant to be used to develop their business objectives and skills in order to strengthen their ability to help more people overcome hearing loss.
"In order to succeed in today's challenging marketplace, audiology students with aspirations of owning their own practices must have access to the best tools and resources," said Ed Keller, president of EarQ. "We are deeply committed to helping these young men and women achieve their goals and offer quality care to more patients."
