PROVIDENCE – The Rhode Island Business Plan Competition will offer insights on how to structure a business plan at a Feb. 13 workshop.

The workshop is part of an ongoing series of free business workshops held during the 2014 Business Plan Competition, which kicked off on Oct. 16. The competition encourages plans for new businesses, as well as from early-stage companies, and the judges focus on originality, breadth of impact on the business community, and likelihood of success in choosing finalists and winners.

Led by Jack Derby, a business consultant for emerging and middle-market companies as well as an active investor, the business-plan workshop will explore how the architecture of an individual business idea drives a written plan, what a business plan should communicate, and how investors assess a business plan.

The event, to be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Feb. 13 at 95 Chestnut St., is free and open to the public, but preregistration is required. For more information or to register, visit the Business Plan Competition events page.

The Rhode Island Business Plan Competition is organized along two tracks, a Student Track for competitors enrolled in college or graduate school and an Entrepreneur Track for all other competitors, whether or not they already have started a business.

The 2014 competition will also award a Technology Special Award, in addition to prizes awarded to winners and finalists, to applicants who propose technology-related businesses in Rhode Island with the potential to grow and create local jobs.

While applicants do not have to be Rhode Island residents to be selected as a semi-finalist, applicants must agree to establish or continue business operations in Rhode Island should they be named a finalist or winner.

The deadline to apply for this year’s Rhode Island Business Plan Competition is April 1, 2014. For more information or to apply, visit www.ri-bizplan.com.

Major sponsors for the 2014 Rhode Island Business Plan Competition include: The Providence Journal Charitable Foundation; AM 790; Embolden; Hinckley, Allen & Snyder LLP; and Kahn, Litwin, Renza & Co. Ltd.
