By  | 

LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) If you have a business idea for Lexington, your time may be here.

To bring new business to downtown Lexington, Main Street Lexington is hosting the Launch Lex program, which will provide an 8-week business training program, starting in late January, 2018. Then there will be a pitch competition.

“The winners will share a pot of $60,000," says Stephanie Wilkinson, of Main Street Lexington. "So they can use that for new equipment, or rent, or something like that. But in addition they also get a huge variety of services. They get legal services, and marketing services, and lots of support for opening a new business."

The deadline to apply is January 15. You can learn more at their website: https://www.mainstreetlexington.org/launch-lex.html
