Create Here Business Plan Competition

We put out a call for the creators, innovators, visionaries, self-starters, hard workers, believers. In short: entrepreneurs. And boy, did we find them! Our Create Here business plan competition delivered over 20 entrepreneurs who competed for a chance to win a start-up prize package worth over $100,000! House of Pendragon/Pita Kabob (HoP/PK) took the grand prize, but downtown Fresno was the real winner: 6 of our 10 finalists are opening businesses in downtown:

HoP/PK and Root General Store and Tree of Life Cafe and Fitness 365 and Raw Fresno and Char.Burger have joined the revitalization revolution in downtown Fresno!
