Permit Us Now Sponsors HCC Center of Entrepreneurship’s Annual Business Plan Competition

HOUSTON, Texas (February 18, 2021) – Permit Us Now sponsors Houston Community College’s Center of Entrepreneurship Annual Business Plan Competition. The announcement of Permit Us Now’s sponsorship comes at a time when many small businesses in the Houston area continue to struggle with loss of revenue due to the pandemic causing major adverse marketplace shifts. Starting in late February 2021 and ending in May of this year, HCC’s Business Plan Competition is for Proposed, Start-up and Existing Entrepreneurs.

A Community College Education award winning entrepreneurial center, HCC’s Business Plan Competition is innovative in its approach in training and coaching entrepreneurs. Instructors, Business Advisors and even sponsors like PermitUsNow, understand the impact that this program has on helping start-up and existing entrepreneurs to grow and the benefit to the Houston area economy. All business competition participants will receive free training on topics such as sales, marketing, and finances along with shaping a business plan to start and/or grow their enterprise.
