SWEETWATER COUNTY — Due to entrepreneurial interest in southwestern Wyoming, IMPACT Sweetwater is extending the Sweetwater County Innovation Launchpad (SCIL) deadline to Friday, June 3.
Innovative and scalable startups, as well as early-stage companies with high potential to impact Wyoming’s economic ecosystems, are encouraged to apply at https://impact307.org/sweetwater-challenge/.
All teams must include a resident of Sweetwater County and have the intention of developing a high-growth company within the same geographic boundaries.
IMPACT Sweetwater will provide valuable mentorship to the finalists, helping them prepare for a Pitch Day competition in September. The winning finalists will receive seed funding, tied to milestones, to help start their businesses. IMPACT Sweetwater will continue to mentor the winners as they launch their new businesses.
SCIL is supported through the University of Wyoming’s IMPACT 307, Western Wyoming Community College, the Rock Springs Chamber of Commerce and numerous local community partners.
For more information, call Monica Patten, IMPACT Sweetwater assistant director, at (307) 466-3963 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
