Show Us Your Spark! Small Business Boot Camp Contest



You don’t need us to tell you that the Great Recession walloped small businesses across the nation. But we know that women are tougher than the times—and we want to honor those who have vowed to live fearlessly no matter the obstacles in their way.

To celebrate the first-ever Pennsylvania Conference for Women and Spark & Hustle Small Business Boot Camp, October 24 in Philadelphia, we want to give YOU a spotlight on our stage to wow an audience of 5,000 women with your small business success.

Here’s how it works: Tell us why you have what it takes to soar in challenging economic times. We’re not looking at your industry or revenue; instead, we’re focused on how you’re living fearlessly as an awe-inspiring entrepreneur.

1. Register for the two-day pass for the Small Business Boot Camp (Oct. 24) and Pennsylvania Conference for Women (Oct. 25) in Philadelphia. Contest entrants must be registered for the two-day pass.

2. Submit your application by Oct. 10. Tell us about your business, the most significant obstacle you’ve faced in launching or growing it, and how exactly you’ve overcome hurdles to soar in trying times. We’re not looking at your business type or your revenue; we’re much more focused on the hustle that’s enabled you to thrive.

3. Ten finalists will be chosen by our expert team and announced at the Boot Camp. All 10 will receive prep help at the event to pitch her business on the big stage.

All finalists will be featured on the Pennsylvania Conference for Women website, on Tory Johnson’s Spark & Hustle website, and on social media promotion through both. Finalists will be seated at a VIP table during the Conference main stage programs.

4. One fearlessly fabulous woman will win a spot on the main stage for two minutes during the Conference keynote luncheon in front of 5,000 women. This is a rare opportunity to wow a huge audience of the most impressive professional women in the state! Must be present on both days to win.
