KOCH is giving girls the chance to build the business of their dreams and win $10,000. The contest will kick off the summer season on May 1st and give you plenty of reasons to celebrate small businesses as we navigate into a time of growth and possibilities. We think this is the perfect way for girls to make their mark on the world and build new companies. It's our time to dream big and change the world. We want someone to feel a sense of empowerment from finding their purpose and mission.

The contest will run from May 1st to August 1st. The summer of dreams. The contest is open to all dreamers, hopeful entrepreneurs and makers.
