The Project

We are inviting anyone from Sierra County with a proposal for a new business, or an idea for adding to an existing business, to submit an application (**coming soon**).

A panel of local business experts will evaluate applications and choose the 3-4 strongest to present at a public event.

At our public Show of Hands event (date TBA, Fall 2024), members of the public will pay a $5 admission fee to listen to entrepreneurs give their business pitch, then vote on the plan they feel is best for our community.  Admission fees will go toward the award money.

The winning business plan will receive $5,000 to help bring their project to fruition. The second place pitch will receive at least $1,500 toward their plan.

Preparation Assistance

The Arrowhead Center of New Mexico State University will be providing a free workshop in T or C in August (tentatively scheduled for August 12 and 19) for anyone who would like assistance in developing their business plan.

Everyone is invited to attend, not just those who are applying to Show of Hands. 

Stay tuned for more details on dates and how to register!!
