If you’re an entrepreneur looking for help launching your business, the annual Entrepreneur Challenge is a great way to test your idea and get meaningful feedback. And if you win, there are money and resources for you as well.
The San Joaquin Entrepreneur Challenge is in March. It’s a competition in which entrepreneurs pitch their business ideas before a panel of judges and an audience (kind of like Shark Tank). They get feedback on their ideas and their presentations.
The competition has two rounds. The first is March 16 in which up to 20 particapants compete. The final eight go on to the second on April 13.
A total of $10,,000 and another $10,000 worth of professional services will be awarded to two winners.
The deadline to sign up is Feb. 7. Go to the San Joaquin Entrepreneur Challenge website for the application. If you want help filling it out, there is a workshop scheduled for3-5 p.m., Jan. 26 at 56 S. Lincoln. St. in Stockton.
