For the second year in a row, Comcast Business is looking for the country’s most innovative startup companies to compete in the Innovations 4 Entrepreneurs competition.
Two companies from the Greater Philadelphia area will get the chance to win $10,000 each as well as an additional $20,000 in cash each along with business advice from top industry experts.
Applicants must submit a 250-word essay explaining how they would use $30,000 in technology investment to enhance their business.
Entries will be judged and two winners will be selected in each of the 16 Comcast Business Regions with one winner for startup companies (in business less than two years) and one winner for entrepreneurs (in business for more than two years). The 32 regional winners will each win $10,000 in cash.
From the regional winners, six grand prize winners will be selected (three startups and three entrepreneurs) who will each earn an additional $20,000 in cash along with a trip to Philadelphia and business advice from industry experts, including Celebrity Chef Robert Irvine and Wharton entrepreneurship lecturer and DreamIt Ventures’ Director Patrick Fitzgerald.
