The Jr. Boss Entrepreneur Academy was created by Anthony Wedo, the CEO of Ovation Brands, the parent company of Ryan’s, HomeTown Buffet and Old Country Buffet. Formerly featured on CBS’ Undercover Boss, Wedo is a tremendous believer in capitalism and the American Dream. He wants to inspire young people to believe in their ideas and to never ever give up!

What is the Jr. Boss Competition?

Jr. Boss is an opportunity for young entrepreneurs to pitch their business idea to a panel of business and academic representatives in their community as well as Ovation Brands’ CEO Anthony Wedo (formerly featured on CBS’ Undercover Boss). Contestants prepare a “Lean Business Plan” and spend 10 minutes explaining to the panel the unique nature of their product, service or program. One finalist from the competition will receive $1,000 in seed money to fund the idea or to pursue additional education opportunities to assist with the creation of the business idea.

What is the Jr. Boss Entrepreneur Academy?

Anthony Wedo’s Jr. Boss Entrepreneur Academy is an online collaborative site that will provide the budding entrepreneurs access to how-to materials, presentation tips and webinars with Mr. Wedo where they can ask questions and solicit feedback as they continue developing their business pursuits. All applicants to the Jr. Boss Competition Entrepreneur Academy free of charge for one year.

How to Enter:

Thank you for your interest in the Jr. Boss Competition! We have created an instructional video that goes over the basics and the application instructions to enter the Jr. Boss Competition.

Here are the documents you or your child needs to enter the competition. Most documents are writable PDFs, so you can download the attachments on your computer, type in the information and save them before submitting them. The only document that needs to be printed and signed by hand is the concept release, which then needs to be notarized by your bank or local credit union and then scanned back to us. All forms must be submitted to by the appointed deadline.

 Photo Release and Waiver
 Concept Release, which must be printed, signed in ink and notarized
 Blank Lean Business Plan Template
 What to Include in Your Lean Business Plan

The lean business plan template is also a writable PDF, so the applicant can type directly into the document. The document called “What to Include in Your Lean Business Plan” poses questions that the child must consider when drafting his/her business plan. These questions should be answered on the lean business plan template.

Note: children who present as a group will need to each fill out their own applications and releases, but can present one lean business plan together.
