Iowa Biz Plan Competition – Go Mirror Gear USA!


Mirror Gear USA is owned and operated by Marie Wickman. Marie invented and developed the Mirror Gear ™, a dental mirror cover for use in dental offices. Marie is a dental hygienist with years of experience in the dental field. Through hands-on experience with the process of using, handling and cleaning mirrors – and seeing scratches ruin countless mirrors – the Mirror Gear ™ idea was born.

The Iowa John Pappajohn Business Plan Competition is designed to stimulate entrepreneurial activity and greater awareness of the resources available to grow entrepreneurs in Iowa. Winners will be announced at the Iowa Venture Capital and Entrepreneurs Conference to be held October 5, 2010.

As a semi finalist, Mirror Gear will have to complete a business plan and prepare a presentation for a panel of judges. Marie and her employees are working with the Iowa Western Small Business Development Center to help them throught the planning process. The center is a free resource for small businesses and existing businesses.

Congratulations Marie and Mirror Gear!
