Due Today: Women’s Foundation Pitch Competition Apps

By Amanda Lewan on July 13th, 2015 / Comments

Calling all female founders! Today is the last day to submit to this upcoming business plan competition.

The Michigan Women’s Microloan Foundation is looking for you to submit a two page overview of your business plan and get ready for an upcoming pitch. Rather than submitting a business plan, this two page document is called a “concept plan” answering some key questions and getting you in front of the judges. There is a $10 dollar processing fee and applications are due today by 5pm.

Each paper will be reviewed by successful entrepreneurs. Twenty semi-finalists will be selected to participate in intense business coaching to hone their pitch and participate in a “shark tank” like competition in front of judges. Below are details on the upcoming pitches:
