Pharmacy Business Plan

Management Summary

John Reeleaf has experience working with a major drug manufacturer, Eli Lilly, as a drug representative. He was able to see first hand the profitability associated with the prescription drug industry, as well as the inefficiencies with which most companies are plagued.

John graduated with an MBA from the University of Oregon's innovative entrepreneurship program. While there he was awarded a $50,000 no interest loan through a business plan competition. That seed money will be parlayed, along with some other investments, into start up expenses for The Discount Pharmacy. John received an undergraduate degree in chemistry from the University of Oregon.
