Are you a new, emerging or growing company located in Essex County or Merrimack Valley? We are looking for companies to enter the tenth annual North of Boston Business Plan Competition. The North of Boston Business Plan Competition has a new, 21st century format! The 25- to 30-page business plan is gone! In its place is a new format that recognizes that the success of a business plan depends equally on the quality of the plan and the people who will execute it.
