EDC invites entrepreneurs to participate in business plan competition, “Launch San Juan Islands”
Entrepreneurs can bring their business ideas to the next level in the second annual EDC Launch San Juan Islands business plan competition, created by the San Juan County Economic Development Council and sponsored by local businesses.
Participants will receive instruction in business planning and marketing, plus follow-up mentoring—and some will win cash prizes to help launch their businesses.
Thousands of dollars in cash prizes will be awarded to contest winners this year. The greater goal, however, is to help every participating entrepreneur to advance their business.
Included in the program for all participants will be seminars on business planning, financing and marketing; opportunities to network and collaborate with other entrepreneurs; media coverage for contestants; professional advice from a team of experts, and feedback on business plans.
Launch San Juan Islands will start in October 2016 and run through early December 2016. The cost to participate is $85 (or $65 if registration received prior to September 19th, 2016.). Deadline to enter: September 25th, 2016. This fee covers direct costs for course materials and events. Please see www.sanjuansedc.org/launch for more information.
