Pepperdine Business Plan Competition Awards $26,000 to MBA Teams
Date:3/11/2008

LOS ANGELES, March 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pepperdine University's Graziadio School of Business and Management awarded $15,000 in seed funding to a MBA business plan addressing California's nursing shortage. Pepperdine MBA students Kimberly Foster and Mara Kamins' Nurse Education Web, a web-based clinical practice reservation system for nursing schools, won first place in the Pepperdine University Fourth Annual Business Plan Competition (http://bschool.pepperdine.edu/students/bplan/), held Saturday, March 8, 2008 in Malibu, CA.

Foster, herself a registered nurse and teacher at a Los Angeles-based nursing school, and Kamins, an experienced entrepreneur and investment banker, proposed an online solution enabling hospitals, clinics and nursing homes to find and book nursing students, who are required to complete 750 hours of on-the-job training to earn their degrees. Using Nurse Education Web's automated scheduling and matching capabilities, nursing schools would not have to contact each individual clinical site for information and available student slots. The improved efficiency would save schools time and money and expand the number of nurses available to enter the workforce.

Second place was awarded to Marumi Marblez, a business plan to recreate "family game night." The Pepperdine MBA team members Zach Pond, Dan Reines, Emalie Brgoch and Vanessa Towning received $5,000 for an original board game that can be played in as little as 10 minutes and left "ready to play" in common areas to encourage family members and friends to conveniently engage with one another at any time.

Finalists LA.Blender.com, a business plan offering real-time online coupons and promotions from area businesses, and White Coast Solutions, specializing in outsourcing private medical practice administration, were each awarded $2,500.

In addition, MBA students independently awa
