Have a business idea you’ve been itching to make a go for? Now’s your chance!

Startup Redding and the Shasta Cascade SBDC have teamed up to create Venture Camp – a free four-week intensive session designed to help get your startup idea off the ground.

Top applicants will compete in a pitch-off at noon Friday, Oct. 9, and six finalists will be chosen to move forward for four weeks of in-depth mentorship and business advising.

Each week will tackle a different topic in business taking you from ideation to actualization. You’ll learn everything you need to know to launch your business – from customer validation to financials to go-to-market strategy and more.

To apply, visit: www.startupredding.com/camp. Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 30.
