We believe most people have entrepreneurial potential and can demonstrate that potential with limited assistance. We would be happy to provide assistance to individuals or teams about how to further develop their ideas. Judging will be by at least three community judges recognized for involvement with for-profit ventures.
The purpose of the competition is to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit in Mid-Missouri and promote the idea of creating an entrepreneurial community. In addition, this Summit will also introduce and showcase the many talented local entrepreneurs throughout the day, highlight the resources available to entrepreneurs, and provide networking opportunities to venture capitalists, bankers, and the business and academic community.
