Gyploy, an online retailer that specializes in providing consumers with environmental, eco-friendly and everyday reusable products, is in the preliminary stage of Chase Mission Main Street Grant Program. Chase will award a total of $3 million to 12 small businesses in the amount of $250,000 each.
In order to become a finalist in the program, Gyploy needs to receive at least 250 votes by November 15, 2013. The public can show their support for Gyploy by voting online using Facebook Connect.
