A local organization wants to see your new business take off.

The Muskingum County Business Incubator is holding its seventh annual Business Plan Competition. The contest is calling on all start-up businesses in the region to enter for a chance to win cash prizes but also business services.

"We’re kind of giving folks with ideas an avenue to maybe turn those into a business or learn how to manufacture their product really what we like to say is we kind of take and idea from concept to commercialization," said MCBI Regional Director Jessica Sherman.

To enter, a business must complete an original business plan about their company. The grand prize is $10,000 dollars and business services from the business incubator. The prizes are an incentive but pushing a business forward is the real reason for the competition.

"In the past we’ve had follks that weren’t the winners that have gone on to be successful as well and continue to do their work with MCBI," said Sherman.

The deadline to enter is October 15th. For rules and regulations, entry form and more information go to the website on the bottom of your screen.
