WHAT
Intuit Inc.’s (Nasdaq: INTU) Small Business Big Game,
sponsored by QuickBooks, continues to put small businesses in the
spotlight, giving them access to a network of opportunities, including
the chance to win an expenses-paid, 30-second television commercial in
professional football’s biggest game on Feb. 7. The program recently
unveiled 10 small business finalists, chosen from over 15,000
submissions, who are in the running for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
that could change the course of their businesses forever.

Next week, Intuit QuickBooks and entrepreneur Bill Rancic will be
traveling across the country to visit each of the 10 finalists, to rally
their local communities, celebrate their successes and thank them for
what they bring to the economy.

The grand prize winner will be determined by the world’s votes, and the
top three finalists will be announced live at Intuit’s second annual QuickBooks
Connect
. To cast votes through Nov. 3, visit the businesses’ entries
