Deadline Is Tomorrow For $25K Century Business Challenge

March 30, 2015

Tuesday is the deadline to apply to win $25,000 to start a business in Century. At last report, there were five applications already submitted.

Prizes for the winner of the Century Business Challenge include space at the Century Business Center at a lease rate of $1 per year, with the possibility of an extension of that rate for two more years based on the company’s performance. They will also receive $25,000 in operating funds from the Studer Institute.  And the Century Town Council has recently approved offering the same $1 per year lease rate at the Century Business Center for the second place finisher.

The five submitted applications cover such business types as education, medical, music, sports and technology.

After applications are submitted, there will be workshops for participants before a business plan and personal financial statements are due at the end of May.

The Century Business Challenge is part of an economic development partnership of the Haas Center, the Town of Century and the Studer Institute. Applications and more information about the business challenge can be found at
