Small Business owners who are looking to expand in our region are being given a new chance to win thousands of dollars in cash and prizes to help them. Beginning in July, business owners will submit applications to EXPAND! in order to have a chance to win a prize package that is designed to help them advertise, market and manage their growing idea or company and even stay fit in the process.
Developed by the Synergy Sessions network, the program includes a prize package already topping over $14,000. Thirty applicants will make it to the first phase of the contest where they will present their idea for expanding their business to a group of venture capitalists, business leaders, an executive coach and an advisor with the Small Business Development Center in Roanoke. These presentations will be recorded at the Blue Ridge Public Television studios and released via social media.
Five finalists will present their ideas before 200 business owners for the final round at Super Synergy slated for October 27, 2011 where the winner will be named. For more information, contact Lynda McNutt Foster at(540) 815-1300 and visit here.
