I am proud and honored to announce that Five Monkeys Inc has been chosen as an American Small Business Champion by SCORE and Sam’s Club.
The American Small Business Championship (championship.score.org) awarded this title to 102 small businesses for their dedication to the success of their businesses. Each state winner will be awarded an all-expense-paid trip to a training and networking event in Reno, NV, SCORE mentoring and publicity throughout the year. Each Champion is also eligible for one of three $15,000 grand prizes.
YES! You read that right! A chance to win one of three $15,000 prizes!!
Five Monkeys Inc suffered greatly during the construction in our neighborhood last year and if we could win one of these grants it would go a long way towards the recovery of business that we need to stick around. It would allow for some advertising, investment in new supplies to offer different and exciting classes for my customers!
I am so honored and excited to have been chosen for this award. When I began my business four years ago, my dream was to create an avenue to sell my art, the artistic endeavors of others. I still do that! I've expanded to offering classes to inspire creativity in everyone!
The prizes, training, publicity and SCORE mentoring we have been awarded will help me take my business to the next level, and better serve you, our customers. I am so looking forward to attending the training event in Reno, and will be sure to check back in and let you know how it goes.
