prizeMoneyThe 2014 Valley County New Business Contest

Valley County communities unanimously agree that entrepreneurship and a diversified network of sustainable businesses and organizations are the most important factors in strengthening this region’s economy and community. All communities therefore contributed to the organization of a New Business Contest to be held in March of 2014.

However, communities cannot fund the prize money for such a contest. The Idaho constitution simply prohibits any contribution to private enterprises if it can be construed as a direct or indirect investment (which includes prize money). Besides the community’s event sponsoring we are therefore in need of prize sponsoring from businesses and organizations. We have half of the prize money committed, but we need your generous donation to fund the remaining $3,000.

What’s in it for my business?!

You know about positive PR; that is a given. We will certainly make sure that your logo will be prominently displayed at the event, and that you will be recognized during speeches, ceremonies and press releases.

But if you, like the communities, believe that a stronger network of businesses is good for the economy, and if you, like the communities, are in it for the long haul, this event will actually grow your home market and thus your sales potential. We believe in it!
