DENVER, May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As the tight lending market continues to stifle small business growth, PostNet, the nation's first and only Neighborhood Business Center with more than 700 franchise locations worldwide, is on a mission to inspire entrepreneurs across the country and award one deserving business owner a game-changing $10,000 cash grant and $5,000 towards design, print, copy, and shipping at their nearest PostNet location.
In celebration of National Small Business Week, business owners looking to take their business to the next level are encouraged to enter PostNet's Boost This Biz contest. Any small business owner can visit PostNet's Facebook page to share why they are deserving of the grand prize. The five entries with the most votes by June 8, 2011 will move on to the final judging round, where an impartial panel of fellow entrepreneurs will choose one grand prize winner. The remaining four finalists will each receive a $200 American Express gift card.
"Every day, PostNet franchise owners work with talented and aspiring entrepreneurs across the country to help them grow their businesses," said Steve Greenbaum, co-founder and CEO of PostNet. "The Boost This Biz campaign is a way for us to recognize all the hard-working business owners who make our economy tick and inspire those who have been disheartened by market conditions."
PostNet franchise owners and their staffs work closely with business owners to identify their objectives, build upon their ideas, and develop the best solution to meet their needs. This could include anything from designing and printing custom invitations or signage for an important company event, to helping create a brand image for a new or existing business looking to re-invent itself. PostNet also offers freedom of choice for the customer as an authorized shipping outlet for all of the major carriers, including FedEx, UPS and the U.S. Postal Service.
