LendingTree’s Small Business Grant Contest: How Your Business Can Win $50,000 in Funding


Ben Goldstein


For many small businesses, the ability to access the right capital to grow or sustain operations can mean the difference between success and failure. Securing financial resources remains a constant concern for business owners — but one lucky business is about to get a leg up.

LendingTree, the nation’s leading online loan marketplace, has announced a Small Business Grant Contest in which $50,000 in funding will be awarded to one deserving business. According to the contest page, LendingTree is looking to fund “a small business that, despite promising opportunities or business achievements, is running into financial roadblocks, hampering its growth potential.”

To apply, business owners need to fill out and submit an online registration form through January 13, 2017, at 5pm EST. The form asks for basic information about your small business and its financial performance, why LendingTree should award you the $50,000 grant, and how you intend to use the prize money if you win.

The contest is open to U.S. residents who are 18 years of age or older. LendingTree’s team of small business experts will evaluate and select the winning small business, which will be notified in mid-February.

Considering that small business grants are relatively rare, you shouldn’t miss out on an opportunity to win $50,000 in free funding for your business. Visit the LendingTree Small Business Grant Contest site for more information, and good luck!
