Competition Application


If you have a business idea or a plan to expand your current business, I encourage you to apply for the new 2016/2017 Hormel Business Plan Competition. One of the best ways to keep southwest Nebraska economically sustainable is to help support and develop the people and businesses we already have. Thanks to a generous donation from the Hormel family and many area sponsors we are able to offer a new edition of the Hormel Business Plan Competition.  Revisions have been made to the previous business plan competition to allow for more economic growth in southwest Nebraska. The winner will no longer receive a prize in the form of a small business loan. Multiple contestants will be awarded with up to $25,000 in prize money to develop your business idea or expand on your current business with no strings attached. We will also be providing you with assistance in writing your business plan, money to help you develop your business, and professionals to provide expertise in areas you may need assistance. I hope we can help turn your dream into a reality. This will create a better future for you and southwest Nebraska.
