Faribault Area Chamber Representatives on AM Minnesota 5-2-2018
The Faribault Main Street Downtown Business Challenge is back and we will get details on AM Minnesota at 9:30 a.m. today. The challenge consists of submitting business ideas. Any and all ideas are welcome. The contest is open to anyone older than 18 who has a business idea for the historic downtown Faribault business district. Preliminary business ideas must be submitted by May 30 to be considered.
A Faribault Main Street news release announcing the second year of the contest states, "The Downtown Business Challenge will consist of three rounds, with the winner receiving a prize package valued at more than $20,000." Seven businesses ideas were submitted last year with Ruf Acres Market winning and receiving a package worth approximately $20,000.
The Main Street release goes on to say, "This is a great opportunity to learn more about the unique challenges and rewards of small business ownership as well as receive assistance through the process.
Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce President/CEO North Johnson says, "Entries will be connected with Small Business Development Center and SCORE resources to really examine and complete a business plan. We're excited to see how many more entries come to the table with the idea of being part of our fabulous downtown."
