What is the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest?
It’s a grant contest with 10 small business winners. They receive grants, prizes, and insights from FedEx experts to help them grow their business. And they join a community of small businesses that offer peer insights.
The contest is open to U.S.-based for-profit small businesses that have fewer than 99 employees and have been in operation selling a product or service for not less than six months at the start of the contest. The FedEx Small Business Grant is about sharing the giant company’s expertise and resources to help small businesses scale up and thrive.
How much are the grants and prizes?
The grant amounts change every year as the contest grows. While the 2020 amounts are still unknown, in 2019 FedEx Small Business Grant Contest prize packages included:
- Grand prize: One winner of $50,000, plus $7,500 in FedEx Office® print and business services
- Silver prize: One winner of $30,000, plus $5,000 in FedEx Office print and business services
- Bronze prize: Eight winners of $15,000, plus $1,000 in FedEx Office print and business services
