The Southern Windsor County Incubator (SWCI) has announced their 3rd annual Business Plan Competition. The top prize is up to $7,000 and the contest is for existing small businesses as well as those looking to start a new business.
The premise behind the competition is to help raise awareness in the region about small business and entrepreneurship, and to encourage new business development by helping interested community members develop viable business plans, gain public attention and earn financial rewards.
To enter the competition, candidates must submit an executive summary consisting of a two-page business plan and one- page financial summary no later than 4 p.m. on April 15. The announcement of a maximum of six finalists for each category will be made on April 21. Those finalists will prepare complete business plans to submit in late May.
In order to be eligible, the current or proposed business must be physically located within the municipalities of Cavendish, Chester, Ludlow, Springfield, Weathersfield or Windsor. Existing businesses must have annual revenues of less than $500,000.
