The Best Business competition is held annually and is open to anyone in the Iron, Beaver and Garfield counties who have a business idea they would like to share. This year there were 21 entrants, each of whom submitted a written business plan and a video promoting their idea. From those entries, 10 were chosen to be finalists and then gave a presentation to a panel of 13 judges.

Since Craig Isom, the SBDC and Southern Utah University started this program, it has continued to grow and attract better business ideas every year. The fact is it is sad that we have to narrow down how many companies can actually present. This year was no exception and the business ideas that were presented were outstanding. We still do not have an outcome, but everyone who presented should be proud of their business ideas and in true entrepreneurial fashion move forward with their plans.
I was excited by the professionalism exhibited by the presenters and amazed at the time these people spent on their ideas. I think that if everyone of them spend the same amount of time working with the customer base, they will see success.
Thank you Southern Utah Entrepreneurs!!!
