Open Call: FedEx Small Business Grant Contest


FedEx wants to give you the chance to grow your company with their Small Business Grant Contest. Now in its sixth year, the annual competition gives US-based brands the opportunity to share their stories and win cash prizes and FedEx services.  Last year, Sword & Plough, a US-based handbag business that works with American manufactures and employs veterans won the grand prize. Sisters Emily Núñez Cavness and Betsy Núñez were able to expand their production, improve their supply chain and inventory management while also bringing on new hires. They were also able to use FedEx's office services for marketing materials to support their brand ambassador program.
