Fusion Credit Union's giving out another $30,000 to businesses as a part of this year's Community Infusion Program. The program was founded to give back to businesses and help out entrepreneurs in the communities that Fusion serves.
This year, they've introduced two categories, New Business/Business Startup and Purchase or Expansion of an Existing Business, to make the program more accessible for entrepreneurs. Mike Csversko, the Business Development Manager for Fusion says they hope this will give more people an idea of what they're looking for.
"There's no such thing as a bad business idea," Said Csversko, "We see all kinds of applications that come through, and you'd be surprised what piques the judge's interest. We're just trying to pull out that entrepreneurial spirit that we know exists in our region, and wanting to build that forward because we know that's what's going to grow our area."
Applications will be accepted for the program until July 3rd at midnight. Successful applicants will be required to submit a formal business plan by August 19th, and finalists will be invited to present their business pitch to a panel of judges on October 4, in Russell. You can apply for the program on the Fusion Credit Union website.
