The world’s largest express transportation company, FedEx Express is holding a competition for UK small businesses with a grand prize of £20,000 up for grabs.
Now in its third year, the FedEx Small Business Grant UK is open to small businesses UK-wide looking to explore international possibilities.
Martin Davidian, Managing Director Sales Enterprise National, FedEx Express and TNT says that, “small and medium businesses are the backbone of the economy and in order to help fast-track their growth, more often than not a ‘boost’ is required in terms of funding”.
Gaining access to funding is no simple task and for SMEs it can be increasingly challenging. Martin adds that, “the SME market has dynamic companies which have huge potential for growth and development, and at FedEx we want to help them evolve, to have access to more possibilities, to become more competitive and to better support their international endeavours. The Small Business Grant UK provides an opportunity for small businesses to secure that boost to their funding and focus on their growth”.
The application process involves a submission that explains your inspiration for setting up a business and a nod to international ambition. Applications can include photos and videos to bring your story to life and to really get across your passion, ideas and philosophy.
Next month, on 7th December 2018, ten finalists will be announced with the winners revealed on the 24th January 2019. In addition to an overall winner, a runners up prize of £10,000 will be awarded.
