FedEx Awarding More Than $120K In 2017 Small Business Grant Contest

For the fifth consecutive year, FedEx is holding their Small Business Grant Contest. This year, the prize package is $120,500, the largest since FedEx began the contest in 2013.

Enter by March 29

Small businesses have until March 29 to enter the competition. The contest is open to U.S.-based for-profit small businesses with fewer than 99 employees who have been in operation for six months or more. When entering, small business owners must enter their contact information, write a short profile about their business and upload four photos of their business or product, including their logo. They may also submit a 90-second video.

All entries are then posted in a Contest Gallery where viewers can vote for a business on the dedicated Contest Site. The top 100 will be asked to submit a 5-minute video. These will be judged to determine the winners. Winners include one grand prize winner, one silver prize winner, and 8 bronze prize winners. Price packages include grants and credit to use towards FedEx Office print and business services to help run their businesses.

The contest has now grown from one country to nine countries, and the grant amounts have grown from $50,000 to over $120,000 in total prizes.
