Startup QuestⓇ, a nationally-recognized entrepreneurship training program that allows participants to collaborate and map out a business plan from the ground up, has seen nothing but success since its birth in Gainesville back in 2011. Startup QuestⓇ aims to help young workers break out of the “job seeking” box and create their own avenues for business success.
Over the course of the 10-week program, participants have the opportunity to work with successful business mentors to develop their own mock-business plans. At the conclusion of the event, these budding entrepreneurs compete to win investment opportunities from a panel of judges.
Regardless of winning or losing, participants leave the program having new, firsthand knowledge about startup and business plan development, marketing, legal and compliance features, operations and management, and so much more.
Marlana Armstrong is a recent Startup Quest alumnus and we’re excited for everything we know she’ll accomplish as she continues her business and entrepreneurial journey.
