There are other ways to receive support even if a start-up is unable to get funding. Many competitions award prize money or coaching.
There are also contests for those interested in starting a business but have yet to develop a business idea. The competitions usually involve simulating a start-up. Teams complete multiple rounds until only the very best remain.
Start-up Management will gladly provide teams with assistance in completing the various tasks and challenges. See our Facebook page for the latest information on applying for the various competitions.
