Deadline approaching for Momentum Business Plan Competition

LUDINGTON — Local businesses and entrepreneurs have until March 24 to enter the Momentum Business Plan Competition, which will award cash and services to three winners this spring. 

Any Mason County for-profit or non-profit venture with a viable business idea, plan or invention – or existing organization or company with less than $250,000 in sales or revenue annually – is eligible to apply. A complete business plan must be submitted along with an application.

  • First place: $15,000 cash and $10,000 in business support services
  • Second place: $10,000 cash and $5,000 in support services
