Please join us for the 15th annual PowerUP! Business Plan Competition Awards Ceremony. Hear live business pitches from our finalists and choose your favorite to receive the $1,000 Audience Choice Award.

This year, the PowerUP! awards are even sweeter thanks to Dime Community Bank's lead sponsorship. Not only are the prize amounts larger—the first place winner will now receive $20,000 in seed money—but there are fun, new opportunities to recognize participants based on the strength of their business idea. The second place prize this year is underwritten by Ridgewood Savings Bank and additional program support is provided by Con Edison, ReferenceUSA, Elizabeth Crowell & Robert Wilson and Signature Bank.
