Business competition picks first-round winners
The Grow America Springboard Competition, a contest that gathers together some of the best business plans and ideas from Utah entrepreneurs, has announced its list of 300 first-round winners.
Those nominees will move on to a second round, where they must re-submit their presentations by Sept. 28. The top 100 finalists from that round will advance to an event Nov. 1 at the Salt Palace Convention Center where they will make a final pitch.
Winners will be named in three categories growth, start-up and idea and will awarded $1,500 to $6,000.
The first-round winners will attend mentor strategy sessions for help with their business plans and videos. For a list of the 300 winners, go to http://www.growam.com.
The competition is sponsored by Utah-based Grow America, which advises young companies.
