Apply Now at Nav's Small Business Grant Contest For a Chance to Receive $10,000

Apply Now at Nav's Small Business Grant Contest For a Chance to Receive $10,000

After its successful first grant-making contest, Nav, a financing company, is once again awarding $10,000 to a deserving small business for its "Legitify Your Small Business Grant" contest. This time, there will also be smaller prizes for two runners-up. Applications are due on August 15th, 2018.

Nav's first small business grant contest, which successfully amassed 347 submissions, just recently concluded. Founding Foods, a Chicago-based company which produces wild boar jerky, won the $10,000 grant. Motivated by its success, Nav has launched their second grant contest last June 15.

To qualify for the contest, one must sign up for a free Nav account, in case there's none yet. Applicants should write a Facebook post about their business, the challenges they face, and how the funds will be used specifically. Creativity is also encouraged so it is optional to post a photo or video with it. Nav will review the submissions that are tagged and e-mailed to them.

The winner, which will be announced on September 3rd, will win $10,000 of funds to be used for the business. A choice of $2,000 or an all-expense paid trip to the 2018 SCORE Awards Gala will be given to the second placer. The third prize of $1,000 will also be given.

Nav was launched in 2012 to help small business owners get more funding. Its website and mobile app gives free access to business credit scores and other tools to build business credit. The company inaugurated the small business grant contest in February 2018 to further help small business take it to the next level.
