Local entrepreneurs once again have the opportunity to jump-start their business in Binghamton.
The Binghamton Local Development Corporation is once again partnering with SUNY Broome’s Entrepreneurial Assistance Program for the 2019 Business Plan Competition.
Those looking to start a business in the city, or have an existing one less than 5 years old, can apply.
The winner receives $5,000 along with additional support including legal counsel, branding services and marketing consultation donated from other local businesses.
Sara Liu, the Founder and CEO of Parlor City Vegan, is a past winner of the event and says the competition helped to get her vegan catering company off and running. “This program provides a huge advantage to folks who are interested in starting a business in the city of Binghamton. I would definitely encourage anyone who is thinking of starting a business to check out the competition and take full advantage of the orientation class that is provided. We attended that last year it was a huge help to us as well as the EAP program and accelerator program at the incubator.”
Those interested can attend the business development workshop at the Holiday Inn Binghamton on March 27th from 5 to 8.
Applications and executive summaries are due by April 4th.
