Will you be one of the 50 finalists who gets a grant of $5,000 each, plus other goodies? Or even one of the two final round winners to receive $10,000 and $25,000?
You have until March 23, 2009 to get involved in the first phase of this competition. All you have to do is share a true-life story that happened in your business and include an advice tip for other business owners. You can write it out in text. Then you enter it at the Small Business United site.
After the initial entries are in, a panel of judges will choose 50 finalists, who will receive $5,000 each plus a Flip video camera, before going on to the final round. I’m one of those judges, and I’m thrilled to be up there with the other esteemed judges, including John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing, Becky McCray of Small Biz Survival, and Donna Ettenson of the Association for Small Business Development Centers.
This competition is put on by Intuit, a huge supporter of small businesses. Looks like it will be lots of fun and could give your business a nice boost if you are one of the finalists and/or final round winners.
Please submit your entry at the Small Business United site (not here at Small Business Trends). Remember, over 50 entrepreneurs will win something valuable. As always, be sure to cross the t’s and dot the i’s by checking the official rules.
