Sam’s Club and the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) have launched a national contest aimed at Latino small-business owners, “Como Si: Doing Business Today for Tomorrow!”, which will culminate in the invitation of 10 winners to Sam’s Club’s Bentonville, Ark., corporate headquarters to learn new ways to incorporate the latest technology into their businesses and create a better bottom line, a prize valued at $4,000 per winner. The contest runs through October 15, with winners to be revealed about a month later.
“Sam’s Club has served the growing number of minority-owned and operated businesses for more than 25 years, ensuring the right products and services are available at great values,” noted Carlos Doubleday, Sam’s Club VP. “Contest name ‘Como Si,’ meaning ‘you can,’ says it all. The contest is an opportunity for small-business owners to gain valuable information beyond the services they provide. We will help them achieve success in today’s business world and better equip them to excel tomorrow.”
As the contest requires entrants to upload a one- to two-minute video to www.comosidoingbusinesstoday.com detailing what’s brought their business this far in today’s arduous economic environment and what their plan is to “keep up and keep going,” USHCC reps will provide training in Denver and other cities to help small businesses create them.
“This one-of-a-kind double initiative was created to help our ‘comunidad’ by providing access to two separate levels of indispensable, yet free, quick and easy ‘how-to’ [training] for Hispanic business owners interested in strengthening their businesses,” said Augustine Martinez, president and CEO of Washington-based USHCC. “We feel this training will be valuable to everyone who attends, as they prepare themselves for the future.”
