About the Contest
The contest features two categories: Established Business and Pre-Venture.
The Annual Amazing Entrepreneur Business Plan Competition is an initiative by Partnership Gwinnett and The University of Georgia Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to foster new business development in Gwinnett County.
The Established Business Category is open to individuals 18 years of age or older who currently own or manage a small business in Gwinnett County that is 36 months old or less as of February 1, 2018. The Pre-Venture category is open to contestants who live in Gwinnett County and have an idea for a business but are not yet open for business.
All Contestants (and each team member) must agree in writing to the rules, regulations, terms and conditions of The Amazing Entrepreneur Business Plan Competition in order to participate, and the Finalists (and each team member) will be required to agree in writing to the terms and conditions of an Affidavit and Release before being awarded prizes.
Sponsorships not only help create an entrepreneurial culture in the community, but also expose new business owners to products and services as they make first-time decisions regarding which vendors they should bring in as partners.

Long after the prizes have been utilized and the trophies are a little dusty, you’ll always have who you met and what you learned.
