How the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest Can Help Entrepreneurs

Website-Header-Template-1

Celebrating it’s 10th anniversary, the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest is kicking off it’s 2022 run with the same passion to help small businesses as they had in 2012 – the grant programs 1st year.

With the grand prize of the contest being $50,000 and further services, there’s no question about the impact this contest could make on small business owners. There will be three grand prize winners, and seven other winners chosen totaling ten grants FedEx is excited to give out. The seven runner-ups are certainly not getting the short end of the stick, though, as their prizing will be $20,000 and some extras.

Entreprenista Media is excited to help FedEx get the word out about the contest. Both share the same passion for helping small businesses! Entreprenista has a paid membership community for women business owners, leaders, and everyone in-between. Their mission is to close the gender gap when it comes to access business tools and solutions, grants, funding.

Entreprenista & FedEx are encouraging all small business owners (with less than 99 employees) to enter to win! Past winners are still grateful for how FedEx has helped them. See below to learn more!
