How do I know if my application went through?
You will immediatly see a screen indicating your application has been submitted and you will get an email from us. Be sure to check the email because it has valuable information about the process. We will not accept applications that are not properly submitted or do not have a video.
Does participating in Power Move Monday every week increase my chances of winning?
Power Move Monday gives our team the opportunity to get to know you and your business better which can absolutely increase your chances of winning! The participation alone is not what increases your chances though, it is the valuable information that we learn about you that does! You can tag us in any information, news, or posts about your business!
How will I know if I am a Finalist?
We will send you an email indicating that you are a finalist and also announce it on social media! Be sure to check the email for directions on what else the team may need from you!
How do I upload my video?
On the second page of the application, there will be a section in which you can place the URL to your video. You can upload your video to Vimeo, Youtube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc as long as we can view the link on the application.
What if my video is not 60 seconds?
We will NOT consider applications with videos that are longer than 60 seconds. If you have additional information you would like us to know, be sure to write it on your application and/or participate in Power Move Mondays every week. If your video is shorter than 60 seconds, we will still review and consider that application.
What if I do not have an LLC or other legal business entity?
The application deadline is November 15, 2021; therefore, your business needs to be a LLC, S Corp, or other legal business entity by that deadline.
How do I know if I qualify?
To qualify you need to be 18 or older, be a woman and/or identify as such, have a legal business, be a US citizen with the business based in the US, and have yearly revenue under 5 million dollars!
Do I have to give up equity in my business?
Absolutely not! The $5,000 will be awarded with the only stipulation being that the Power Move Marketing needs to approve what the funds are used for.
How many winners will there be?
As it stands right now, only one winner will be selected! If you know a donor who would be interested in helping grow the fund so that we can select multiple winners, please contact email@example.com.
How will the winner be chosen? What is the criteria?
This is the very first year of the Power Move Women in Business Search so we have no previous criteria that we are building from. Our team of business experts will carefully review each application that meets the requirements and choose finalists that will be announced December 1, 2021. We are looking for strong, independent women who are thought-leaders, active members in their community, and have the entrepreneurial bug!
