Participants in the third class of the Vicksburg Entrepreneur Bootcamp graduated from the program on the night of November 2nd at the Hinds Community College Campus. For six weeks, nineteen participants who are interested in starting or growing their small businesses learned about topics such as legal, finance, accounting, marketing, and other essential components associated with starting and running a successful business. A business coach and business advisors were also present to assist. At the end of the bootcamp, all of the participants were able to incorporate what was learned into a finished business plan.

For several weeks, the participants diligently worked on finalizing their business plans to pitch to a four-judge panel. The participants discussed their business sector trends, feasibility, marketability, and financial growth to the judges in order to have a chance to win a “Seed Grant” of $1,000 to help them with the cost of opening or improving their small business.

After presenting to the competition’s judges, founder of Tae Hubbard with Sweet O’ Mississippi was announced as the winner of the Business Plan Competition. Sweet O’ Mississippi provides custom sweets and treats such as their famous cake jars, chocolate covered strawberries, cheesecakes, and personal size cakes.
