Deadline to Apply Is Only 9 Weeks Away!

The deadline to apply to the 2013 Rhode Island Business Plan Competition is rapidly approaching.
All applications are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 1.

We advise applicants to develop most, if not all, of their plan first and then work from that to complete the online application. This will help you develop the information you need for the application. Read more.

There is no advantage in applying early since the judges will review applications only after are all received. But there is a strong advantage in working on your plan now.

Approximately 12 applicants will be selected as semi-finalists on April 8 and asked to submit a full business plan by April 16. By working on their plan sooner rather than later, applicants will be better prepared to submit a full plan should they become semi-finalists. See more.
