In 2020, we launched our signature project, “Hands Up Lake County”, a business plan competition that tapped the interest of entrepreneurs and small businesses throughout Lake County. The whole community came together to support the program. Both private companies and the government went above and beyond to support this venture. In 2020, 2021, 2022, we provided a total of $28,000, $50,000, and $100,000 in cash prizes, respectively.
This 2023, we are poised to do more. It will be bigger and better with cash prizes amounting to $120,000.
