Bright Ideas Wanted: Governor’s Business Plan Contest Opens
Wis. entrepreneurs can submit pitches through end of January
Do you have a tech-based business idea that could hit it big? The 18th annual Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest is accepting entries for the 2021 competition through 5pm Saturday, Jan. 31. The contest is designed to encourage entrepreneurs in the startup stage of tech-based businesses in Wisconsin. The contest links up-and-coming entrepreneurs with a statewide network of community resources, expert advice and mentoring, management talent, and possible sources of capital. For their initial entries, contestants will submit a 250-word idea abstract online at govsbizplancontest.com. Contestants who advance to subsequent contest rounds will expand their plan in stages. About 100 volunteer judges drawn from the finance, sales, marketing, research, and technology sectors across Wisconsin will score the entries and provide feedback on submissions.
