Need some start up funds to get your idea off the ground?

Procrastinators rejoice — it’s not too late to enter the $5,000 Launch Pad contest!  Civic Ventures has extended their deadline on  the Launch Pad Contest.  The mission is to find five people over the age of 45 who may need a bit of a financial boost and support structure to their business idea.  If you are someone who applies your life and work experience to improve your community, or if you have a great idea and need a bit more support, to get your community-based program off the ground, this may be the opportunity you have been looking for. The five winners each win $5,000 to put their idea into motion, and the contest is open for submissions until December 20th. After that begins the process of selecting semifinalists and eventually the 5 winners.

Civic Ventures is a think tank that has searched for new and innovative ways for boomers and seniors to have “encore” careers later in life.  The deadline has been extended to Wednesday, December 22. That means you still have two more days to get your submission in.
