Are You Ready to Risk It?


Innovation. Maybe the most important combination of 10 (I counted several times) letters that are out there today. Companies must innovate to succeed; innovation is what drives many entrepreneurs each and every day.

Innovation is a huge part of the Indiana Chamber-led Indiana Vision 2025 plan. The mission statement: "Indiana will be a global leader in innovation and economic opportunity where enterprises and citizens prosper."

Innovative is how I would describe Risk It, a new regional business idea competition in the southeastern part of the state that is being presented by the Indiana Small Business Development Center. A three-minute pitch to a panel of judges and audience is accompanied by the opportunity for prizes that include visibility and expert assistance.

The initial event is October 25 at the Venture Out Business Center in Madison. An awards luncheon in New Albany is one of the following steps.
