DEADLINES

The deadline for the Burt Williams Memorial Veteran Small Business Award is March 8, 2019 at midnight ET.  The StreetShares Foundation will select the 8-15 finalists. These finalists will be presented on the Foundation website for a public vote.

The three military veteran entrepreneurs with the highest vote count will have the opportunity to travel to the MGM National Harbor on April 18, 2019 to pitch live at BourBiz. The audience will vote to determine the recipients of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

The most important impact the Award had on me was directly due to the feeling that someone actually believed in me and my ability to grow my company in to something that will create jobs and opportunities for veterans, military spouses and moms in general. Something changed in me that day, I finally had a little capital to hire a franchise consultant and one year later I was able to sell my first franchise!
