FedEx Launches 4th Annual Small Business Grant, Accepting Applications now. Entry Period Ends May 30th http://smallbusinessgrant.fedex.com/
FedEx has asked us to help them get the information out about their 4th annual small business grant, especially in the minority and veteran communities. The Small Business Grant Contest is now accepting applications for a total prize pool of $100,000.
This year, the contest is offering grants to ten small businesses, with the largest sum since its inception, of $100,000. Among them, one Grand Prize winner of $25,000, one $15,000 winner and eight $7,500 winners will be awarded.
The contest is designed to help small business owners take their business to the next level and achieve growth and success. It also offers the opportunity for small business owners to share their stories and achieve national recognition while simultaneously rallying support from local communities to grow their businesses.
Voting is open to anyone and can be conducted online at fedex.com/grantcontest or via a social media platform of the entrant’s choice.
The FedEx Small Business Grant Contest is open US based for-profit small businesses that have less than 50 employees and have been operating for six months or more.
Last year’s winner was In Blue Handmade, which specializes in hand-made, customized leather goods. Through the $25,000 grant and support of FedEx shipping services, In Blue Handmade has grown from a one-woman operation, to an 11-person company that ships products all over the world that even has its own e-commerce site, and is in more than 300 boutiques and shops nationwide.
