To improve the entrepreneurial ecosystem and assist with quality job creation in the Sheridan area, UW’s Wyoming Technology Business Center (WTBC) is looking for individuals who are interested in starting a new business or early-stage entrepreneurs wanting to grow. The WTBC, through the Sheridan Start-Up Challenge, is providing a monetary incentive and the business support needed for contestants to act on their ideas.
Each finalist will work closely with WTBC staff to develop his or her business in the Sheridan area. All finalists will gain business process knowledge as they progress through the phases of the competition. Regardless of the competition outcome, each finalist will be more prepared to launch and grow the business, improving the local economy.
The top three finalists will each receive $5,000, one free year in WTBC’s incubator, and be eligible to access a $50,000 Seed Fund for working capital.
