McCook Community College
Hormel Entrepreneurship Competition

Entry Application Deadline: November 30, 2020

for local businesses in the startup
or expansion phase to help jumpstart their business!

The contests will host startup or expanding businesses
from 7 southwest counties in Nebraska:

If you have a business idea or a plan to expand your current business, we encourage you to apply for the new 2020/21 Hormel Business Plan Competition.
