Three local entrepreneurs heading to the ThriveNorth Business Challenge

Three local entrepreneurs will be participating in a challenge to win some cash to either help start up a business or expand an existing one.
The ThriveNorth Business Challenge gives young people from the northwest an opportunity to develop a business plan and pitch ot to a panel of judges.
There is $10,000 up for grabs.
Eleanor Stewart is a jewelry designer from Smithers and wants to start her own line.
“The prize manifests in several different ways,” she says. “There is the cash money that would be vital for start up costs but they also offer a lot of business connections, networking and mentorship programs and various workshops– I think that is very important.”
Sean Mitchell of Spark Design will also be pitching his ideas as he wants to expand his business and Ria Smith of Hazelton is hoping to start up her catering business.
The entrepreneurs will present their ideas on Saturday in Prince Rupert with several other people and the winners will be announced on Saturday night.
