The Gauntlet Competition
The GAUNTLET is Virginia’s Largest Business Program and Competition open to interested entrepreneurs of all ages and skill sets. This year’s Two-Track Curriculum will incorporate necessary training tools for both Main Street and High-Growth businesses.
The GAUNTLET is a comprehensive business development program. Entrepreneurs will participate in weekly business training sessions, meet and network with successful entrepreneurs, fellow GAUNTLET participants, mentors, and develop business strategies that provide a road-map to success.
This year we have over 120 entrepreneurs and over 250 mentors involved in the program.
Anyone is welcome to participate in the training sessions and classes; however, businesses wanting to compete for cash and prizes must start or expand their business in the Alleghany Highlands, Botetourt County, Roanoke City, and/or Roanoke County.
