OpenWorks EnterpRISE Competition
Welcome to EnterpRISE 2020! Since 2017, we've invested $54,000 in Baltimore-based manufacturing companies. But it's not just money -- we take you through four workshops on business topics, mentorship with business leaders, AND give 6 months of free membership to all 10 finalists. This year, we are focusing on Covid-19 manufacturing solutions. Hit us with your ideas for a pandemic-proof future -- PPE, sneeze guards, hand sanitizer, UV disinfecting robots -- and we'll help you make it.
+ Grand Prize: $10,000
+ 2nd Prize: $5,000
+ 3 runners-up: $1,000
+ ALL ten finalists receive:
\- 4 business workshops
\- Access to world-class mentors
\- 6 months of free Pro membership at Open Works
\- Follow-up help from our partners Innovation Works and Made in Baltimore
This year, we are focusing our competition on solutions for a pandemic-proof future. This could be any manufacturing product that could built locally and help solve any problem related to Covid-19, from cleaning to social distancing to distance learning to personal protection and beyond.
Judging for EnterpRISE is simple. Decisions are based on four criteria: - Is this a viable business idea? - Can this business scale up? - Can this business create jobs? - Will this business use Open Works' resources to grow?
\* Founders must be residing in or attending college in Maryland or Washington D.C. at the time of the competition and be at least 16 years old. If your college is meeting virtually at this time and you are living in another state, you are still eligible.
