The Midwest Venture Summit is coming up in March, and for any businesses in the Greater Midwest that would like to apply for the summit’s business plan competition, the deadline is coming up even sooner! The cutoff is Jan. 31st, so if you haven’t already submitted your application, now’s the time to do so.
This year is the MVS’s third annual summit, and for the first time, will be taking place over two days instead of one. There are three tracks to the summit this year, and they are as follows:
- Early Stage companies will be competing for $70,000 Bob Geras grant that he’s giving away for his 70th birthday (woot!).
- Late stage companies looking for funding will have an opportunity to seek out funding as well.
40 B-School students presenting their winning business plans and vying for a $50,000 award, sponsored by IL DCEO, to start up their business in Illinois.
It only costs $175 to submit your business plan, and the cost of the summit for those not presenting their business plans is $499 for the two days. Click here to apply, and see here for more information.
