Chandler, AZ (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
VISION Marketing & Consulting created The Successful VISION Grant for women owned businesses in Arizona. Applications are accepted beginning Monday, December 16th.
The number of women owned businesses in the U.S. has been increasing rapidly over the last 20 years. VISION Marketing & Consulting wants to help women entrepreneurs start, grow and expand their businesses. “We are excited to be a part of small business growth in Arizona and feel blessed that we have seen success with our own business since starting two years ago. We want to be able to give back to other female small business owners through this grant, by working with them to develop a strong marketing plan and helping them see results from their efforts" said Karen Cummings, co-owner of VISION Marketing & Consulting.
One grant will be awarded annually in the amounts of $1,000-$2,500. In addition to the monetary amount, Grantees will be awarded the Small Business Success Marketing Package, valued at $3,000, from VISION Marketing & Consulting for three months. This complimentary service includes research and development, social media marketing, public relations, and print marketing. The criteria for applying for the Successful VISION Grant is that the company should be less than two years in business, have an annual minimum revenue of $20,000, is a minimum of fifty percent women owned business, the business must be based in the state of Arizona, and the business must be aligned with a charity or charitable cause. Veronica Shaw, co-owner of VISION is excited about the new grant, “Through my career I have seen successes and failures of businesses, some of which are contributed to marketing efforts, or lack thereof. With the Successful VISION Grant, we are hoping to provide women-owned, small businesses a head start when it comes to marketing and help contribute to their success. We have been fortunate in our business to be able to implement strategies that help us grow, and we want to do the same for other small businesses.”
The application deadline for the The Successful VISION Grant is Saturday, February 1st, 2014 and winners will be announced March 3rd, 2014. For more information about VISION Marketing & Consulting and the The Successful VISION Grant, visit http://www.visionmarketingaz.com/successful-vision-grant .
