Small Businesses Continue to Vie for Ultimate Touchdown; Thousands of
Dollars in Prizes Available
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
It’s time for a two-minute drill. There’s less than one month before the
Aug. 7 deadline to enter Intuit Inc.’s (Nasdaq:INTU) Small
Business Big Game, sponsored by QuickBooks. The contest will
culminate in the ultimate touchdown – a grand prize that awards a small
business with an expenses-paid, 30-second television commercial during
professional football’s biggest game on Feb. 7, 2016, at Levi’s Stadium.
The campaign reflects QuickBooks’ mission to inspire, educate and
connect the nation’s 29 million small businesses.
Small Business Big Game kicked off on June 1 and, since then, has seen
thousands of businesses across the United States enter to win the
opportunity to showcase their company to a worldwide audience with an ad
in football’s biggest game. Additionally, business owners have
opportunities to win an assortment of prizes through Nov. 3, from grants
to product giveaways, while also connecting with other business owners
by entering the contest on Own
It: A Small Business Network. With the clock winding down and
thousands of dollars in prizes on the table, the time is now for small
businesses to capitalize on the potential that the program provides.
“This is just one more way that Intuit QuickBooks fuels small business
owners’ growth and prosperity,” said Ken Wach, vice president of
marketing for Intuit’s Small Business Group. “Hearing all the
businesses’ stories so far has been inspiring. While Small Business Big
Game has a big prize at the end for one deserving small business, the
entire program was created to give businesses more ways to connect with
each other and opportunities to drive their success.”
Entering to Win
To enter, small businesses can visit the Small Business Big Game
website, where entries for the 30-second television commercial will be
accepted until Aug. 7, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time. Participants will
then be evaluated by an internal panel of Intuit judges based on the
owners’ passion for their small business, as well as their authenticity,
public representation and other entrepreneurial benchmarks that align
with Intuit’s commitment to small business success. The top 10 finalists
will be announced on Sept. 2, when public voting kicks off to determine
the top three winners and continuing through Nov. 3, at 12 p.m. Pacific
There is more to win than the 30-second television commercial. Small
businesses who stay in the game through Nov. 3 can benefit from all the
opportunities the program provides, including multiple chances to win
additional cash prizes.

rules, visit the Small
