We love supporting small businesses, which is why selecting EnterpriseU as our #LinkPoint Supports recipient of the month was an easy choice. EnterpriseU is an annual small-business event that provides small business owners in Kankakee County with education and resources they need for success.

If you own a small business that is expanding into a new field, or if you started a business within the last year, you can't miss this opportunity to apply for the two-month business boot camp that will kick your business into high gear. Entering the business plan competition could win your business one of three major prize packages, including startup capital, rent-free office space, and much more. EnterpriseU offers contestants business-plan mentoring, networking opportunities, and the chance to win capital and services for your business.

EnterpriseU is supported by the Economic Alliance of Kankakee County, Kankakee Community College, the Community Foundation of Kankakee River Valley, and the Kankakee County Chamber of Commerce, along with many other partners.

We strongly encourage businesses in the Kankakee County area to apply for EnterpriseU before the cutoff date—this Friday, March 20. There is a $50 application fee, but it's well worth the investment. You could win thousands of dollars in small business capital and business services to help get your enterprising ideas off the ground. Why wait until next year when you can give your business the boost it deserves now?

If you already own or run a successful business, we encourage you to consider supporting EnterpriseU in the future by thinking about what you can offer to enterprising new businesses. Growing businesses and new jobs help our whole community, which is why we love supporting EnterpriseU.
