New Contest for Small Business Owners

1 Mins read

A new contest, Building Resilient Businesses (BRB), was just launched by Kapitus, a financing provider for small business owners.

You can submit applications from now through June 30. To enter, send a video sharing your small business story and how $100,000 would help you continue to write that story.

Initial judging will be done by a team from Kapitus, followed by a round of public voting. Winners will be announced on August 23. In all, seven prizes will be awarded: One 1st-place winner will get $100,000, one 2nd-place winner will get $50,000, and five 3rd-place winners will get $20,000 apiece. All winners will also receive an eight-hour advisory session in one of the following areas: digital marketing, finance management, or data analytics.

“During these challenging times, addressing the financial help and educational resources needed for business continuity is more important than ever,” said Andrew Reiser, Chief Executive Officer of Kapitus. “We created the BRB contest, and larger initiative, to help the small business community overcome these challenges and continue to thrive for years to come.”

Kapitus says this is “the first of many projects that will be part of [their] larger BRB initiative, aimed at giving back to the small business community. The goal of the ongoing initiative is to help businesses grow strong through financial support, educational resources, tools, and volunteer programs that help businesses bounce back from crises.”
