Building on four past
seasons of fantastic success, MyTwoFrontTeeth.org was able to craft its business
plan based on actual historical data and well-grounded forecasts and
assumptions; this lead to a clear
articulation of the business and operational models and a solid confidence in
the team’s projections. In both
competitions, much emphasis was placed on an entrant’s ability to prove that
its earned-income strategies could eventually lead to self-sustenance, a clear
strength for MyTwoFrontTeeth.org.

Underlying its social mission, MTFT's merchandiser-like business model also ensures the organization's continued self-sustainability.
“We are extremely
pleased and honored to have won top honors in these two competitions,” stated
Josh McFarland, MyTwoFrontTeeth.org CEO, “It is very rewarding to have the
external validation and support that comes from winning competitions like these,
both in terms of prestige and actual funding.”
