Current and aspiring business owners can enter the competition for a chance to win up to $30,000 and participate in a day of mentoring with teams of business experts who will provide advice on how to implement their plan.
Based on a 250-word essay submission, applicants will answer the question: How could your business use technology to help enhance your business? Startups and entrepreneurs are encouraged to visit the Comcast Business Community to submit their application and essay and review the full program details. Entries are due by March 12, 2016.
“Our sales have increased 32 percent since last year, and I attribute that to some of the changes we put in place using money we won in the Comcast Business I4E contest,” said Gail Kincade, owner of Act II Consignment, a boutique consignment shop and 2015 Grand Prize Winner. “We added a technology-driven loyalty program, updated our computers, improved our website and hired more employees so we could ramp up sales. I was able to open a third store three months after I got back from my I4E trip to Philadelphia.”
