The Growing Side of Business

Win $10,000 from UPS to grow your small business

The Growing Side of Business challenge will support one small business looking to expand their operations.

The Specifics

Small businesses across America have been in a state of survival for the last few years, but many are beginning to see new signs and opportunities for growth. Whether a company is expanding to international markets, providing a new product, or just opening another location, GOOD + UPS want to help support the innovation and passion of one extraordinary growing small business.

Together, we’re presenting our second challenge within the Small Business Collaborative: The Growing Side of Business challenge.

Through this program, we hope to jumpstart new ideas and opportunities for businesses across America looking for help as they take a bold new step forward.

Submissions are open from November 19 to December 21, noon Pacific Time, and your business will have a chance to navigate the growing small business sector with advice from experts—and $10,000. The chosen company will be selected based on its potential and commitment to seeing sustainable success through its proposed growth opportunity. The business will also win a feature on GOOD to inspire other companies through its successes and challenges.
