The founders of a local nonprofit that formed after the 2018 Mendocino Complex fires are getting ready to kick off a small business incubation program that will award thousands of dollars to five finalists in Lake County with promising ideas.

Hand Up Lake County is a contest modeled after the television show Shark Tank and projects like Startup Mendocino, which provide seed money and training to small business owners and entrepreneurs in a competitive format, where judges and an audience ultimately decide who wins.
