Do you think you know what it takes to successfully run a small business?
If so, consider entering the Small Biz Challenge from the UPS Store and Inc. Magazine.
The contest seeks the most knowledgeable small business owners in the nation to compete against each other.
The winner gets $25,000 and a feature article in an upcoming edition of Inc. Magazine.
Online entry runs through Feb. 23.
"The Small Biz Challenge is an opportunity to unite, recognize and reward the best and brightest in a very lively competition," said Michelle Van Slyke, senior vice president of marketing and sales at The UPS Store.
The competition culminates during National Small Business Month in May when finalists showcase their small business smarts in front of a live audience.
The entry form asks applicants what makes their small business unique, how the business will benefit from winning $25,000, and their philosophy for growing and scaling their business.
Robert Herjavec, an investor on the TV show Shark Tank, and founder and CEO of Herjavec Group, will offer feedback and advice to competitors throughout the event.
