08/23/2018: "Business Plan Competition Open"

Entrepreneurs can bring their business ideas to the next level in the third annual EDC Launch San Juan Islands business plan competition, created by the San Juan County Economic Development Council and sponsored by local businesses.

Participants will receive instruction in business planning and marketing, plus follow-up mentoring - and some will win cash prizes to help launch their businesses.

Thousands of dollars in cash prizes will be awarded to contest winners this year. The greater goal, however, is to help every participating entrepreneur to advance their business.

Included in the program for all participants will be seminars on business planning, financing and marketing; opportunities to network and collaborate with other entrepreneurs; media coverage for contestants; professional advice from a team of experts, and feedback on business plans.

Launch San Juan Islands will start in September 2018 and run through November 2018. The cost to participate is $65 if registration received prior to September 18, 2018, or $85 thereafter. Final entry deadline: September 25th, 2018. This fee covers direct costs for course materials and events. Please see for more information.

The EDC thanks our funding partners: San Juan Propane, Luxel, King’s Market/Valmark, the Islands Sounder, the Journal of the San Juan Islands, the Islands Weekly, Heritage Bank, Islanders Bank, San Juan County, the Port of Friday Harbor and the Town of Friday Harbor.
The San Juan County Economic Development Council (EDC) strives to strengthen and diversify the economy of San Juan County. We believe a strong economy builds a strong community.
