DETROIT (AP) — The 2014 Comerica Hatch Detroit Contest is accepting entries and the annual effort has added the Detroit Lions as a presenting sponsor.
Comerica Bank provides the $50,000 prize along with in-kind support. The winner gets legal, marketing, advertising, accounting and other help. Organizers say they're seeking savvy entrepreneurs and business-minded individuals to submit ideas.
This year, the Detroit Lions are providing financial other support to Hatch Detroit participants who have followed through on a business plan laid out during the contest but need further assistance.
Comerica Bank is in its third year as flagship sponsor. The deadline for submissions is July 16. Details are posted online.
