Business plan contest
Realize your Business Dream!!!
New Registration deadline: May 16th, 2014!
The Business Plan Contest is one of the major activities organized under the economic component of the CMA 2014. This contest was established with a view to create and start-up new businesses on the territory of Acadia of the Lands and Forests by youth aged between 18 and 34 years. It will also contribute to raise awareness and introduce youth to entrepreneurship and the possibilities of creating a business in Acadia of the Lands and Forests; showcase and promote the existing support system to small businesses on the territory; and encourage networking and the development of business contacts between the regions.
Details of the contest
Those who have an idea for a business are invited to submit it to the business plan contest in order to realize their business dream!!!
Interested persons have until May 16th, 2014, to register online. Subsequently, participants will receive support for the development of their business plan that they must submit before June 27th, 2014. A regional jury will select three finalists in each of the regions (northern Maine, Témiscouata, and Northwest New Brunswick). A grand finale will be held on August 20th, 2014 in the form of a gala and a jury will select one recipient by region. Each winner will receive a prize of $5,000 cash and great visibility for their future business.
