Hormel Business Competition

All entry applications are due by November 30, 2018

Competition Application

If you have a business idea or a plan to expand your current business, I encourage you to apply for the new 2018/19 Hormel Business Plan Competition. One of the best ways to keep southwest Nebraska economically sustainable is to help support and develop the people and businesses we already have. Thanks to a generous donation from the Hormel family and many area sponsors we are able to offer a new edition of the Hormel Business Plan Competition.  Revisions have been made to the previous business plan competition to allow for more economic growth in southwest Nebraska. The winner will no longer receive a prize in the form of a small business loan. Multiple contestants will be awarded up to $25,000 in prize money to develop your business idea or expand your current business with no strings attached. We will also be providing you with assistance in writing your business plan, money to help you develop your business, and professionals to provide expertise in areas you may need assistance. I hope we can help turn your dream into a reality. This will create a better future for you and southwest Nebraska.
