The Venture Forum (TVF), a Worcester-based organization that supports technology and life sciences entrepreneurs, is accepting business plan entries for its 2013 Business Plan Contest (BPC) this fall.
The BPC is designed to create opportunities for area life sciences and technology entrepreneurs to have their start-up plans critiqued and polished through a rigorous competition, according to TVF. Winners receive an award package including cash and in-kind services, which have reached more than $10,000 in value in prior contests, TVF said in a statement.
Those interested in registering can visit TVF here to apply. The first round of the contest will take place on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. In the initial phase, contestants will deliver their business plans to a group of judges.
Finalists will be selected and offered guidance ahead of the BPC's premier event on November 12, where a winner and other awardees will be announced. The location has yet to be determined.
TVF is also looking for judges and sponsors for this year's event. Those interested can e-mail Lori Jones at BPC@TheVentureForum.org.
