ecycler visits BPC, ends up with $20,000+


A while back, a company called ecycler contacted us and let us know that they had been selected as one of the 10 finalists in the Fairfield Inn & Suites Small Business Boost Contest, a competition they discovered on

They were then given 15 free nights at Fairfield Inn & Suites, which were to be used in a three-month time period. During this time, they used social media (blogging, tweeting, Facebook, etc) to chronicle their journey, and were judged on how they used the travel opportunity to meet their business goals.

Now we hear that ecycle have won the $20,000 grand prize. Way to go! Here’s a great video that explains a little bit more about ecycler, and what they’ve taken away by participating in this business competition:

We feel even more delighted about this because it’s proof that is accomplishing what we set out to do, by providing a place for startup companies to easily find and learn about business plan competitions that they might not have found otherwise. If any other company has a similar story about entering a competition they found through us, we’d love to hear about it!
