Contest Seeks Creative Solutions to Business Challenges
Looking for an opportunity to give your business national exposure and capitalize on innovative efforts to weather a difficult business climate? Consider entering the Wall Street Journal’s Small Business, Big Innovation contest launched last month to recognize companies that have used creative measures to stay afloat during the recession.
Here are some of the basics:
- Use the application form to tell about the challenge your business faced; the innovative solution you put in place; and the significant milestone – such as vastly improved revenue or expansion into new markets – that has resulted since Jan. 1, 2009.
- All entries that match the criteria will be featured on the WSJ blog and in September, readers will weigh in, and vote for their favorite.
- Separately, a panel of judges will select 10 finalists – and an ultimate winner – who will be featured in the Journal’s Small Business report, which publishes Nov. 21, 2011.
The deadline to enter is September 5th. For more information or to read through some of the entries, visit the contest’s home page.
