What’s Your Digital Dream for Your Business?

In honor of National Small Business Week, SAP is inviting small business owners around the U.S. to participate in the Dream Digital Contest for the chance to win SAP technology plus a $500 reward to help realize their digital dreams and transform their business. The contest will run until May 1, 2017, with the winner announced on May 5, 2017 – the last day of National Small Business Week.

To enter, small businesses must submit a short video (2 minute max) or essay (150-300 words) via the contest website detailing their digital dream for their business.

What is a digital dream? We’ve left it open-ended on purpose.

Dreams aren’t meant to be dictated, but here’s a few questions to get your inspiration flowing…  Do you want to grow your business? Open a second, or maybe a third location? Do you want to get closer to your customers, improve your customer service or reach them with more tailored marketing campaigns? Do you want to spend more of your time on innovation, on developing a new product or service, rather than on office operations? No dream is too big, or too small to be considered.

Small businesses have an incredible economic and social impact on the U.S. economy.  This contest is an opportunity to celebrate these businesses and help make their jobs a little easier through digital technology. The SAP offerings they can win provide insights for making better business decisions and simplify customer engagement and the hiring process. They are tools to fuel business success. Madhur Aggarwal

How It Works

The submission process opens today, March 29, 2017 and will run until April 23, 2017 at 11:59PM EDT. During that time, business owners can submit a video (2 minutes maximum) or a short description (150-300 words), provided that they meet the pre-defined criteria. The video or essay should explain your company’s digital dream.

The public voting process will open on April 17, 2017 and run until May 1, 2017 at 11:59PM EDT. Submissions are still being accepted through April 23rd, but note that early submissions – by April 17th – will consequently have more exposure during the voting period. Votes can be cast on the contest website. For each vote and each social media post using the hashtag #DreamDigital, SAP will donate $1 to the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), an international nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring young people from low-income communities to stay in school and recognize business opportunities. That means that each vote is not only supporting current small business owners, but also enabling the next generation of entrepreneurs.

The winner will be notified on or before May 5th, via the contact information (phone or email) provided in the entry form. If we’re unable to reach you at the contact information provided after 2 separate attempts, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to the entrant with the next highest number of votes.

Let your network know of this opportunity for small businesses.
