About the Program
MillerCoors Urban Entrepreneur Series (MUES) and Business Plan Competition is giving consumers the chance to vote for their favorite urban entrepreneur. The new Consumer’s Choice Award is a unique addition to the national business plan competition. This new component will allow semi-finalists the opportunity to engage their social networks for a chance to win a business development grant of $10,000.
MillerCoors will continue to support entrepreneurship by awarding up to $150,000 in business grants to up to five promising entrepreneurs. Dedicated to helping urban entrepreneurs establish and grow their business, the MUES program offers a set of unique resources to business owners looking to learn about the program, craft successful business plans and gain insights from experts.
MUES will also be traveling the country talking about the program and providing resources at events such as the Black Enterprise Conference, the Latina Style Business Series, the National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP) Conference and the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Conference.
The MUES program continues to grow its list of partners with the addition of the NAAAP. Some of the long-standing MUES supporters include the Atlanta Business League, the Chicago Urban League, the Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater Dallas, the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and additional local chambers and affiliates of the Urban League including the Urband League of Greater Dallas and North Central Texas.
