SEED to Sail

Seed to Sail Logo

The CNMI Small Business Development Center Network is proud to present the inaugural SEED to Sail (Supporting Entrepreneurship & Economic Development). This event comes to you in partnership with the University of Guam Masters in Public Administration Program - CNMI graduating Class of 2023. SEED to Sail is a guided experience for start-up and early stage businesses to create and present a pitch to support their application to receive “seed money” to fund their small business venture. Participants will receive one-on-one counseling through the CNMI SBDC Network, build a viable business plan, and network with other small business owners and entrepreneurs in the community. 

For our first round we selected our finalists but due to an overwhelming response, we have decided to open a new category which widens the pool to businesses for more than 1 year. (Please see details in the application, feel free to email any questions.)  

The main event will be held on Friday, October 14, 2022 from 4:00pm-10:00pm at the Grandvrio in Garapan, Saipan.
