Calling all Canadian entrepreneurs: Tell @TELUS & @globeandmail your greatest business challenge for a chance to earn a $100,000 grant



Being a small/medium sized business owner isn't easy - especially when you're starting out.  A little help, like a small business grant can certainly go a long way. This is yet another reason I am a TELUS client (and fan) through and through.  A company that is invested in helping entrepreneurs grow is a company I appreciate and respect.
In March, TELUS and The Globe and Mail launched The Challenge, the 3rd annual contest inviting Canadian small and medium-sized business owners to present their biggest business challenge for the opportunity to win a $100,000 grant from TELUS. 
This great opportunity was given to entrepreneurs across Canada to submit entries at Globeandmail.com/thechallenge and the entries will be judged by a panel that includes entrepreneurs and business experts.
In 2012, TELUS received more than 1,200 entries. The 2012 winner Glassopolis, sellers and distributors of fire-resistant glass in Toronto, Ontario, invested in new machinery to increase production and customer distribution. 
If you won the $100,000 grant, what would you put your grant money toward? 

To enter the contest, entrants are asked to describe the following in an 800-word submission:

  • A challenge their business is currently experiencing (200 words);
  • A proposed solution to this challenge and how the $100,000 prize would help overcome that challenge (200 words);
  • An explanation of the results they expect to achieve (200 words);
  • A description of how their business incorporates the following values into their business: 1) community investment/commitment to charities, 2) customer service and 3) innovation (200 words)

Calling all Canadian entrepreneurs: Tell @TELUS & @globeandmail your greatest business challenge for a chance to earn a $100,000 grant!

Canadians and fellow small business owners can join the conversation and follow the contest on Twitter via @TELUSBusiness and @GlobeSmallBiz using the hashtag #smallbizchallenge, on LinkedIn and on Facebook at Facebook.com/TELUSBusiness. The contest closes May 27, 2013.

Submissions close next Monday, May 27th!
It is easy for any small business owner to enter the contest for a chance to win the $100,000 business grant. Just fill out the quick online form and submit via the website!

City girl moves to the country, falls in love, and marries a farmer. She tries to incorporate her city ways with her new country lifestyle and blogs to keep in touch with friends, family & students who live far, far away :) Can this city girl go country? Watch as she learns all sorts of exciting things about life on the farm and in a small rural community. *UPDATE* We are now parents! Our baby girl was born on Nov. 11, 2008 (at 28 weeks gestation- 12 weeks premature, but she's quite the trooper)!!!
