Starting on October 1, 2012, U.S. small businesses with less than 100 employees will have the chance to compete for $50,000 in grant money as part of FedEx’s first-ever nationwide small business grant competition. While five winners will each receive $5,000, the contest’s top prize will be $25,000.
This is an online contest through Facebook. Small business owners who would like to compete for the grant money must complete an online profile that involves a photograph and answer three simple questions in 500 words or less. Entrants will then be voted on by Facebook users starting on October 1 through November 24, 2012 at http://www.facebook.com/Fedex. Registration is now open at http://fedex.com/grantcontest.
FedEx will review all entries in December and announce the top 100 shortly thereafter. The top prize winners, including the grand prize winner, will then be announced in January 2013. Register your home-based or other small business, business opportunity, licensee opportunity, distributorship or franchise today!
