Last year, more than 100 small businesses and startups from the Houston area participated in the competition. JC Sports, an indoor sport complex for children, was named the winner.
Contest submissions are being accepted through May 19. Business owners are encouraged to submit a short description about their company along with their business plans describing why the company has a bright future in their industry. Each submission will be reviewed by BBVA Compass executives, Dynamo executives, a representative from the East End Chamber of Commerce and SCORE, a network of business mentors.
The top four entries will be announced May 31, and an online vote will determine the winner to be announced June 9.
