WTBC is committed to supporting the entrepreneurial eco-system in Wyoming and fostering the growth and development of entrepreneurship through our statewide network of incubator facilities located in Laramie, Casper, and Sheridan. We are excited to introduce entrepreneurship competitions as an additional educational tool, service, and opportunity offered by WTBC.
The mission and goal of developing competition platforms is to (1) teach entrepreneurship, (2) support entrepreneurs through business counseling and coaching in launching their companies, and (3) assist companies in obtaining seed funding. In an 11 year study of the Rice University Business Plan Competition, participants were found to have a five year success rate up to 44% higher than entrepreneurs not involved in a competition.
Each competition will be administered by WTBC but may have different eligibility criteria, timelines, and rules. Please select a link below for more information on each competition or challenge.
