Social Savvy Geek Needs Your Help – “Mission: Small Business” Grant

Many people think that big corporations employ the majority of the people in the U.S., but in reality small businesses are the backbone of our economy, providing more than 60% of all private sector jobs in the United States. Chase and Living Social have teamed up in an effort to boost the economy and support small businesses at the same time with a grant program called Mission: Small Business. This Grant will award 12 small businesses across the country with $250,000 each, and we are determined to be one of them!

Winning this grant (think it with us – we’re putting positive thought into action right there), will enable us to hire more people and grow our business so that we may better serve our clients and our community. It will also allow us to continue having a positive impact on our community and our economy by helping more women and disabled veterans succeed in businesses through training programs that are currently in development (the missing element to implement is, you guessed it, money). 

We truly appreciate your support!
