BlueGill Studios has placed first in Abilene Christian University's SpringBoard Business Plan Competition.

The challenge was a mini-business plan competition for the Abilene community and universities. Jeff McArthur and Joseph Quigley of BlueGill Studios were one of the 123 people and teams who submitted a business plan this year.

The SpringBoard competition gave BlueGill Studios the opportunity to organize and present a business idea before a live panel of judges.

“It is all designed to encourage entrepreneurs and to create a more friendly environment for starting a business here in Abilene,” said James R. Porter, entrepreneur-in-residence at Abilene Christian University.

BlueGill Studios and the first place winners in two other categories were awarded a $7,500 cash prize. Bixby Enterprises and Mark Horn Enterprises donated a total of $24,000 of free rental credit to each winner as well.

With help from the Unity game engine, we're developing a proprietary platform that will allow players to seamlessly transfer their games across devices. For example, a college student can play our upcoming game, Fruit Factory, on her iPhone, put it away when class starts, and then finish it on her laptop in her dorm room when she gets back.

Thanks! We're still pretty pumped about winning. We'll finally get our hands on Unity Pro and have plenty of resources left over for marketing!
