2021 Grand Prize Winner:
Pranil Panda, a 9th grade student at Eisenhower Middle/High School in New Berlin, is the first-place winner in Wisconsin YES!, a statewide youth business plan contest for students in middle and high school.
Pranil’s company, All Weather Glowing Fish Bait, is an artificial bait that can be used for multiple species of fish in any weather, water depth or condition. The core product is a lure with adjustable light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, that can be set to catch different types of fish known to be attracted to light in different colors and hues. His business plan discussed the bait itself, likely competition, and market conditions.
A recorded presentation of Pranil’s business plan was shared virtually at the June 3 Wisconsin Entrepreneurs’ Conference during the awards portion of the Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest.
