That is great news for small businesses and with that also comes some national exposure as part of the prize.
Send a video that details how you started and built your small business, and some info on how it's doing and you are in the running.
"Small business is the engine that powers the American economy, and small-business success stories are powerful inspiration for future entrepreneurs," said Mark Garzone , NFIB Senior VP of Marketing. "We want to give small-business owners the chance to tell the world how they launched their business."
The entire month of February, entrepreneurs can visit www.nfib.com/videocontest and submit a video about how they built their business.
There will be weekly prizes given as a panel will pick three winners who will have their video posted on NFIB.com.
These winners receive a free one-year membership to NFIB. At the end of four weeks, NFIB.com visitors will vote for their favorites from the 12 weekly winners, with the winning business owner receiving the $5000 cash.
You can enter if your business has less than 500 employees and is incorporated or organized in the United States. Entries will be judged based on creativity and originality.
NFIB is active supporting its small-business membership in Washington, DC and in every state capital.
