Small businesses are the backbone to the U.S. economy and the sector is growing. According to the Small Business Administration, more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. Small business owners face a long list of challenges, and for many, the obstacle of securing financial resources needed to grow a business claims the top spot on the list. That’s the driving force behind LendingTree’s inaugural $50,000 Small Business Grant Contest, where LendingTree will present the winning small business a $50,000 grant to help fund future growth.
Small businesses interested in participating in LendingTree’s $50,000 Small Business Grant Contest can submit their registration online until 5 p.m. EST on Jan.13, 2017. The registration form consists of 20 questions, collecting information on historical business performance, future plans, why the business deserves the $50,000 grant and how the grant money would enable future growth. Once the registration submission period closes, LendingTree’s team of small business experts will evaluate, select and notify the winning small business.
