Idea Café (http://ideacafe.com), an established online community for entrepreneurs, announced the beginning of a new Grant campaign in honor of all forward-thinking business owners, giving them the chance to win a cash grant and gain media exposure for their businesses. The Idea Café’s 14th Grant, sponsored by WebiMax (http://www.webimax.com/), will award $1,000.00 in cash and a total of $1,500.00 in advertising credits to the most inspirational entrepreneurs, who are willing to turn their business dreams into reality.
The grant contest is now open for registration. Entrepreneurs are invited to submit their application and showcase their business. No matter whether their business idea is ground-breaking or a simple, but yet creative solution to an everyday problem, what will give the applicants an edge is their creative approach and willingness to achieve more.
Deadline for entering is June 2nd 2013. Applications are open to everyone who currently owns a business or is planning to start one. Details are available at the Idea Café Grant Center at http://www.businessownersideacafe.com/small_business_grants/14th-grant-applications.php .
After the application period concludes on June 2nd, all entries will be screened for conformity to the official guidance. Approved entries will be posted for public voting in the semi-finalists voting round. The top 10 companies that received the highest numbers of votes will advance to the final round of this grant competition where the ultimate grant winner and the recipients of the additional prizes will be determined by the public.
The Idea Café grant is featured on Business.gov – the official business link to the U.S. Government. This is Idea Café’s fourteenth cash grant for small business owners and is aimed at highlighting and promoting the best of American small business. Previous winners have been featured in the press and on TV, and have gone on to earn further state and national recognition.
