Cottage Grove Business Challenge - Up to $10,000 in Prize Money, Networking and Mentorship Opportunities, Chance to Pitch to Local Investors

In 2017, a local resident and business owner walked into the Cottage Grove Chamber of Commerce office with an idea about how to encourage entrepreneurship, create new jobs and give back to the community that contributed to his own success. Harold Frazier of New Breed Seed Company donated $10,000 and said he simply wanted it to go to someone with a great business plan that would create new jobs in the Cottage Grove area.

The Chamber of Commerce, Cottage Grove Community Development Corporation and RAIN Eugene joined for several months of meeting, and in those meetings the Cottage Grove Business Challenge was born. Twenty-four hopeful entrepreneurs took the challenge and three were chosen to receive funds to help start/expand their businesses.

This year entrepreneurs are invited once again, to take the challenge and submit their business plan ideas for a chance to win up to $10,000 in start-up funding. Please see ‘Participant Information’ on the website (www.cgbizplan.com) for details.  Those who accept the challenge will have access to a series of classes through Lane Community College and the Lane Small Business Development Center, Liveplan business plan writing software will be provided by Palo Alto, as well as mentor support from seasoned business leaders. Classes begin March 20, 2019.  Submissions for the Cottage Grove Business Challenge are due May, 1st 2019 (emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots.
