Launch an Entrepreneur Competition

On April 12, 2016, My SWVA Opportunity partners hosted a seminar instructing community stakeholders on how to successfully launch an entrepreneur business plan competition. The free workshop provided insight on successful regional competitions, the benefits of competitions from the challengers’ perspective, best practices and steps to organize a competition, and the various resources available to assist with implementation, including grants from the Department of Housing and Community Development. Attendees from across the region were provided with a detailed instruction manual with tips and helpful forms for coordinating an entrepreneur competition.
