Grow America was founded in 2012 by entrepreneur, investor, philanthropist and popular columnist and author Alan E. Hall, as an organization that funds great companies, helps accelerate their growth, and stimulates the economy by helping entrepreneurs. As an expansion of the progress started in its 2012 programs, Grow America has expanded its competitions to an online platform that will support entrepreneurs throughout the entire United States for 2013. Ultimately, Grow America intends to offer its programs to entrepreneurs throughout the world.

The 30-day Innovative Product Competition Grow America is launching today will award $35,000 to three winning companies ($20,000 for first place, $10,000 for second and $5,000 for third). The competition uses CrowdLift℠, a new platform that lets entrepreneurs use their community, the social community and entrepreneurial networks to provide votes and to help the best innovations rise to the top.

“Our entire focus through our Fishbowl Inventory family of products is on providing small to medium companies with all of the resources they need to succeed,” said David K. Williams, CEO of Fishbowl and popular Forbes and HBR columnist and author. “We are proud to be Grow America’s first Presenting Sponsor, and to join our tremendous partner Intuit to support Alan Hall in advancing this new program in 2013.”

Entrepreneurs can come to the Grow America site to compete, to leverage socially-curated information, to vote for great product ideas, and to access the entrepreneurial hub that provides an exciting set of downloadable resources for business owners and individuals who are in the process of becoming entrepreneurs.

Grow America has also acknowledged the role of Startup America, who helped to kick off the January competition by inviting Grow America to preview the program from its CES stage.

Entrants in the program gain points through community votes with “likes” and “shares.” Grow America’s new social platform also helps participants track the progress of their favorite entrepreneurs and organizations.
