Washington, N.C.–The Beaufort County Community College Small Business Center has unveiled the Seed & Sow Startup Contest, a new-business aid.

This is a small-business learning and planning process culminating in a “pitch contest” where qualifying entrepreneurs compete to win cash awards to help fund their small business startup idea.

Qualifying competitors would be required to complete all five free SBC Core Workshops, attend five (one-hour) counseling sessions with BCCC SBC Director Jack Dugan, complete a formal business plan, and register their business with the NC Secretary of State.

The contest will take place in April 2024 with coursework and counseling beginning in September to December.

Only open to Beaufort, Hyde, Tyrell, and Washington County entrepreneurs. Register online for more details.
