Startup Hastings

Encouraging new ideas and businesses

It is our mission at Hastings Economic Development Corporation to make Hastings a community of choice for quality businesses and talented people which is exactly why Startup Hastings was created. Through the many resources we have locally, Hastings is a great place to start a business. On inspiredbyhastings.com/startup you will find all of the entrepreneurial activities happening in our community. Through these activities, we hope to identify more entrepreneurs and help more startups succeed.

Big Idea Hastings started in 2015 and was a huge success. BIH is back and we are currently accepting idea submissions. Go to bigideahastings.com to submit your idea. The Top 8 Finalists will be competing to win $1,000 on Tuesday, November 7th. All are invited to attend this event. The social begins at 5:30pm at The Lark in Downtown Hastings and the Idea Pitches begin at 6:30pm.

Inspired by Hastings was created through HEDC's talent initiative
