FedEx Small Business Grant Contest
FedEx Corp. announced Tuesday (February 19) the launch of its seventh annual Small Business Grant Contest. This year, the contest offers grants and services to ten U.S.- based small businesses, distributing a collective prize pool of $220,500—the largest sum since the contest was established in 2012.
In addition to the grants, winners will also receive an additional dollar amount in credit to use towards FedEx Office print and business services to help run their businesses, as well as packages designed to help them with website optimization, design thinking, social media, and print expertise.
The 2019 FedEx Small Business Grant Contest is open to U.S.-based for-profit small businesses that have fewer than 99 employees and have been operating for six months or more.
To enter, participants can visit the site and enter their contact information, write a short profile about their business, and upload four photos of their business or product, including their logo. Participants also have the option of submitting a 90-second “elevator speech” video to supplement their entry.
The contest entry period is open from February 19 to March 25, 2019, with voting to take place from February 27 to April 1, 2019. Following a judging period, winners will be announced on April 29, 2019.
