Aspiring and current entrepreneurs are invited to take advantage of two funding opportunities this December – a Business Plan Competition and a Mini Shark Tank. Empire Capital Consulting Corp.’s CEO Mark Palmer is hosting this event in an effort to give back to the community. “Many people have valid business ideas and just need incentive and opportunity.
Part of our mission as a business owner is to give people who have a vision a chance to make their vision come to fruition. We want people to map out their vision on paper in the form of a business plan so that they can understand the process of obtaining financial support.
Our investors agree that, if given the right opportunity, new businesses can thrive in this economy. With the present state of unemployment, many people have become more interested in self-employment. We encourage anyone who has an idea to contact us for more information on the upcoming competition and investment opportunities.”
The Business Plan competition is open to any one with business ideas in any industry and category. Participants must register for the competition by November 25th and submit a complete business plan by December 9, 2013. First prize is $3,000, Second Prize is $1,500 and Third Prize is $750..
The winners will be announced at the Mini Shark Tank Expo on December 23, 2013 at Empire Capital’s Office located at 501 Washington Lane in Jenkintown, PA. After the Business Plan winners are announced, there will be an opportunity to pitch business ideas to potential investors who have committed to participate as “sharks” and will consider offers from aspiring entrepreneurs seeking investments for their service or product. Participation in the Business Plan Competition is not required to take part in the Mini Shark Tank event.
