We're awarding $25,000 to entrepreneurs with business ideas that can help makers and artisans in Memphis!
Made By Project partners EPIcenter and Little Bird Innovation are kicking off a business plan competition for entrepreneurs to solve some of the most pressing challenges that makers and artisans, or those who create and sell physical – and often handmade – goods, face in growing their own businesses. Entrepreneurs who want to create and launch businesses that address needs in packaging, shipping and distribution and accessing raw materials could win $20,000 to advance their business idea, as well as $5,000 in business service support from EPIcenter.
Find out more about the Operation Opportunity Challenge: Maker Edition competition, challenges, application process, and timeline at our kickoff event on November 15 during Global Entrepreneurship Week and Minority Enterprise Development Week, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Cowork Memphis, 902 S. Cooper St.
Hors d'oeuvres and beverages will be served.
