Your “green” idea could be worth $100k

Jeremy Aldrich -- December 19th, 2008

JMU’s Center for Entrepreneurship has a competition on for the JMU community (which includes all Harrisonburg residents) to find the best viable business plans for sustainable businesses.  The contest defines sustainability as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”  The winner will get up to $100,000 in start-up capital and in-kind services, as well as expert advice as they carry out their plan.  The deadline to submit the outline of your  idea online is January 19.   According to Roanoke’s WSLS, 18 groups have already submitted plans.  Details of the contest can be found here.
