The BIG Competition’s 3rd Annual Event offers an opportunity for inventors, entrepreneurs, and students in eastern Idaho to present their best product and business ideas.
BIG stands for “Business + Innovation + Growth™” and this event is designed to educate prospective entrepreneurs on the processes of early stage financing and enterprise, while helping clever minds put their ideas to work.
With more than $5,000 in prize money on the line, the BIG Competition is doubling its reach for 2015, adding “High School” and “Diversity” tracks to the existing “Collegiate” and “Community” tracks.
This is a huge community startup blitz –ENTRY deadline for the BIG Competition is January 9, 2015.
