TERRE HAUTE — Applications are now being accepted for the Young Entrepreneurs Program, an initiative that assists college-aged and recently graduated entrepreneurs in making their business plans a reality in Indiana.

“Indiana’s world-class universities continue to graduate some of the best and brightest entrepreneurial minds in the country,” said Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann.

Young entrepreneurs can apply to the program by submitting a business proposal to the Indiana Small Business Development Center by March 22.

A panel of judges will review the applications and select entrepreneurs with the top proposals to participate in a state-wide event in which local and community officials will be able to offer incentives to attract startups to their communities. The incentives may include free rent, grants, loans and utility support.
