City of Denver holds business-plan competition

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, , ,


The city of Denver is holding a contest for its startups and early-stage businesses, with a $50,000 prize going to whoever submits the best business plan.


At a similar contest organized by the entrepreneurial outfit Galvanize on Friday, Paul Washington of the Denver Office of Economic Development said the winner of the city competition also will get a “shout out” from the mayor in each of his public speeches in the weeks after a winner is announced this fall.


The prize money for the city contest is coming from donated funds. The winner also would receive services donated by sponsors, including a year of free office space, legal consulting, tax and accounting help, strategic marketing and social media advice.


Applicants can start entering this week through mid-September.

    What are the requirements other than the actual business plan? Are there certain forms to fill out and submit? If so, where does one get them? Is there a link for this information? Thanks! Dorothy
