Direct lender Balboa Capital will celebrate National Small Business Week by inviting small business owners to participate in the company’s “What’s the Big Idea?” contest and by providing them with access to helpful tips and resources.
“National Small Business Week is a time to recognize the millions of business owners whose vision, ideas and entrepreneurial spirit are creating jobs and powering our nation’s economy,” said Kevin Umeda, manager of Sales Planning and Coordination at Balboa Capital. “We are celebrating this week-long event by inviting business owners to share their stories and compete for up to $1,000. Additionally, our digital marketing team created relevant content for business owners, including blog posts, whitepapers, and a small business success kit. Available for free on our website, these resources are filled with tips and strategies to help business owners in all industries get ahead in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace.”
The “What’s the Big Idea?” contest will run from May 1st through May 26th, and eligible small businesses can compete for a $1,000 grand prize, a $500 runner-up prize, and one of ten $50 honorable mention prizes.
Beginning with President John F. Kennedy in 1963, every president has declared National Small Business Week to recognize and commend the myriad achievements of the nation’s small businesses, which today account for 99.7% of all businesses. May 2019 will mark the 56th straight year that National Small Business Week is celebrated in the United States.
