Ruffatto Business Plan Challenge for Montana university students launches new Missoula businesses; apply now for 2019 competition


Jenny Sheets’ business idea flowed naturally from a decade of teaching students the fundamentals of writing.

She realized that teaching grammar and spelling wasn’t enough, and felt called to make a change.

Her idea motivated her to enter the John Ruffatto Business Startup Challenge, a competition for all Montana University students with entrepreneurial ideas.

Sheets presented Story Squares, a web-based application designed to guide individual users, schools and businesses through their writing using manageable squares, similar to sticky notes, that can be moved for easy editing and revising.
