MADE in Missouri competition will highlight new businesses in Missouri

This program is open to the entire state and for ag businesses.

Missouri Alliance for the Development of Entrepreneurship (MADE) is proud to present the 2010 MADE in Missouri State Entrepreneurship Competition, an event that will highlight new and aspiring businesses through a competitive and educational business development process.

The competition will provide Missouri's new and potential business owners an opportunity to put their business ideas up against others throughout the state. Participants start by answering a questionnaire about their business idea and will be provided with tips and suggestions for improving their businesses. Finalists will present their products and services at the Missouri State Fair on August 19 in Sedalia with cash prizes awarded for startup capital to the winners.

Registration is open to any potential business owner or current business owner in operation three years or less. There are Youth and Open categories for participation, and entrepreneurs considering going into business for the first time are welcomed. Participants do not have to be in business yet to compete.

Submissions for the preliminary level are due April 10. For more information and to register, go online or contact:
