This year's Winneshiek County Development "Biz Booster Challenge" will award a grant of up to $12,000 to the winner of the business-plan competition.
The Challenge is open to anyone who starts a new business or significantly expands an existing business. The main consideration in selecting a winner or winners in the Biz Booster Challenge will be the amount of economic impact the new or expanding business will have in Winneshiek County.
The Biz Booster judging panel will make the final decision on whether the $12,000 grant will be awarded to one participant or split among multiple winners. The deadline for entering a business plan is Friday, April 6th.
In addition to a one-time grant award, the winner or winners may receive free professional consultations with an attorney, a certified public accountant or other professional helpful to running a small business.
Registration materials and more information about the Biz Booster Challenge may be obtained by contacting Winneshiek County Development Director Randy Uhl at 563-382-6061 or email@example.com., or by going to www.thinkdecorah.com.
