Northwest Wisconsin Business Idea Contest Once Again Giving Grants for Winning Business Ideas

Business Idea Contest
For the third consecutive year, the Wisconsin Innovation Network, Lake Superior Chapter, is inviting entrepreneurs and inventors to submit innovative business ideas that may win them one of several grants being offered as part of this year's grant program. Applicants need to apply by June 20, 2014.

Who can enter

Entrepreneurs and small business owners who have a great idea that will bring business to the counties of Ashland, Bayfield and Douglas may enter the contest. The purpose of the contest is to reward small business owners for innovative business ideas and to spur business growth in northern Wisconsin.


Finalists will be chosen among all applicants to present their ideas at the annual Lake Superior Business and Technology Conference in Ashland, Wisconsin in August. Seven winners will be selected to receive cash prizes up to $2,500.

The contest is sponsored by the Bayfield County Economic Development Corporation whose services and programs support local businesses and improve the economic health of residents in northern Wisconsin.
