Are you ready to launch your business, or move your great idea into action? Is your existing business ready for the next level? The ENGAGE business challenge may be just what you've been waiting for, to take that leap.
The ENGAGE business challenge is a three-month business training and mentorship program, that seeks to enhance main streets and downtown business districts, and other commercial areas in the targeted region, which will ultimately result in a "pitch" night in Delta. The challenge is available to entrepreneurs and businesses in Olathe, Delta, Orchard City, Cedaredge, Hotchkiss, Paonia, Somerset and Crawford.
Participants will be introduced to opportunities and incentives in communities throughout the region to either find, or expand into, the perfect location for your business. Participants will also develop a deeper understanding of how to create a business plan, be partnered with a mentor, and enjoy networking opportunities with other regional entrepreneurs. Participants will also compete for cash prizes and other consulting services.
ENGAGE Business Challenge applications are due by Feb. 12. For more information contact Shawn Gardner at 970-712-0950 or email@example.com or visit www.engagedeltacounty.org.
