Konia is very excited about the new ways that this emerging technology is going to have a positive effect. New technology is the key to overcoming some of the problems we face, and Atmospheric Water Generation (AWG), is a prime example of it. Konia invites everyone to visit their website which is linked below to see the complete description of their projects and goals.
Demonstrating their ongoing commitment to small businesses, Chase and LivingSocial recently launched “Mission: Small Business,” a new grant program offering up to $3 million to small business owners nationwide. Chase and LivingSocial also obtained the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to help announce the program and drive small business engagement and participation.
The program, which will award up to 12 individual grants of $250,000, was developed to provide small businesses with capital and innovative marketing resources needed to make a positive impact on their business.
Through June 30, Chase and LivingSocial invite small business owners who have been in business for at least two years and have less than 100 employees to visit Mission Small Business to enter the program. Each business will be required to answer questions about why their business is unique, outline a proposed plan for utilizing the grant to grow their business and describe how the business is involved with its community.
Grant recipients will be selected by a panel of small business experts who have agreed to participate including:
Steve Case, entrepreneur and co-founder of AOL; CEO, Revolution LLC
Candace Nelson, founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes
Jason Calacanis, CEO, Mahalo.com
David Chavern, executive vice president and chief operating officer, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
Richard Quigley, president, Business Card, Chase
Tim O’Shaughnessy, CEO and co-founder of LivingSocial
