IMPACT Sheridan announced that the application period for the 2022 Sheridan Start-Up Challenge entrepreneur competition will begin Monday, August 15, and run through Monday, September 19. Prospective contestants will be vying for a portion of the $100,000 seed capital fund that has been set up for the event. There is no cost to apply, and it takes just a few minutes to complete. Interested entrepreneurs are encouraged to provide some basic information, including a summary of their business idea/product/service, the market they plan to serve, and advantages of their offering over competitive/alternative options.
A panel of community judges will select the top ten for a semi-final round. Of those contenders, approximately five finalists will be chosen to work with IMPACT Sheridan to further develop their plans and prepare a presentation for Pitch Night, which will be held Tuesday, November 1st. Pitch Night will be held at the WYO Theater in downtown Sheridan and will be livestreamed by a team from Sheridan Media. A crowd favorite, the Audience Choice Cash Award, will allow in-person and virtual attendees to vote for and fund their favorite Pitch. Information on how to apply can be found here.
