Comcast Business and Inc. Magazine launched “Innovations 4 Entrepreneurs,” this month, a national competition that will award more than $600,000 in cash and services to aspiring entrepreneurs who are leveraging technology to enhance customer and employee experiences.

Individual winners will have the opportunity to win $25,000 in cash, Comcast Business Internet and TV services for two years, a $2,500 allocation for additional Comcast Business services and complimentary use of premium cloud applications from Comcast’s Upware partners Cisco, Microsoft, Symantec, DocuSign, Soonr and Swiftpage Engage for one year.

Based on an essay submission, entries will be judged and two winners will be selected in each of the 16 Comcast Business Regions: one winner for best use of technology to enhance the customer experience and one for best use of technology to enhance the employee experience. Entries will be judged by John Jantsch, Marketing Consultant, Speaker and best-selling author of Duct Tape Marketing, The Commitment Engine and The Referral Engine and Anita Campbell, Founder, CEO and Publisher of Small Business Trends.

From the 32 regional winners, six will be named grand prize winners and, in addition to cash and services, will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City, where they and a guest will have the opportunity to receive one-on-one consulting with nationally recognized business experts: Marcus Lemonis, businessman, investor, TV personality and Philanthropist; Robert Irvine, Celebrity Chef and Entrepreneur; and Comcast senior executives. They will also receive a VIP tour of 30 Rockefeller Center and an awards dinner prepared by Chef Irvine.

New Mexico entrepreneurs are encouraged to visit www.business.comcast.com/i4E to submit their application and essay and review the full program details. Entries are due by April 30, 2014.
