Your Big Idea Could be Worth $25k

by | Aug 30, 2017 | News

Apple started in a garage.  Microsoft started in a college dorm.  The first powered flight was conceived in a bicycle shop.  Will the next Big Idea start right here in The First Frontier?

The Ben Franklin Technology Partners are sponsoring a Big Idea contest right here in The First Frontier.  This is your chance to win up to $25,000 – no strings attached.  In addition to the first prize, the winning idea will receive priority access to a pre-seed investment (valued up to $10,000), a one-year pass to Ben Franklin eMarketing Learning Center seminars (valued at $3,000) and free consultation from the Innovation Partnership on accessing federal R&D grant money (valued at $3,000).

Contest entries are accepted through October 2nd at 5:00 p.m. and final judging will occur on November 16th in Johnstown.
