A coalition of pro-business organizations in Terre Haute has launched a new pitch competition and the eventual winner already has a store front in the downtown area to set up shop. Business incubator Launch Terre Haute, the chamber of commerce and the West Central Indiana Small Business Development Center are behind the competition called Launch P@d.
“Launch P@d creates the opportunity for entrepreneurs to open a brick and mortar storefront or office with the support of other local business owners, Launch Terre Haute, the ISBDC and Chamber,” says Launch Director Jared Ell. “The winner will have a built-in support system.”
Interested participants are encouraged to visit the Launch Terre Haute website for additional details and to submit a business plan. A callout meeting is set for September 7 for interested entrepreneurs. Participants will be notified of their selection to the program September 13.
The winner will have access to a 700-square-foot office space on Wabash Avenue, next to The Saratoga restaurant. The restaurant owners also own the open space, who are reducing the rent in support of the competition.
