If you've always dreamed of opening up your own business, but have never known whether the time was right, or wished you has someone you could ask questions about how and where to start, or possibly that you could receive a little help and support as you begin the journey toward owning your own business, you're in luck. The Faribault Main Street Economic Restructuring and Organization committees have put together the Downtown Business Challenge.

The Downtown Business Challenge is a contest open to anyone older than 18 who has a business idea for the historic district in downtown Faribault may participate in. Preliminary business ideas must be submitted by May 15 to be considered. The Downtown Business Challenge will consist of three rounds, with the winner receiving a prize package valued at more than $20,000. If you've been dreaming of opening up a business, or know someone who is, downtown Faribault might be a great place to do it, and right now might be the perfect time!
