Could your business use a $100,000 grant and new technology?

TELUS and The Globe and Mail have partnered up to bring you the fourth annual contest created for Canadian small businesses and start-ups.  The Challenge helps take businesses to the next level by helping them overcome their biggest challenge – with a $100,000 business grant from TELUS and a national profile in The Globe and Mail’s Report on Business. This year, there will also be prizing for four semi-finalists and ten regional winners across Canada*.  Winners will be selected by a panel of judges consisting of inspiring Canadian business owners and business experts.

In 2013, TELUS received over 1,000 entries to the contest. In the end, Livestock Water Recycling was awarded $100,000.  With the grant, the company is researching and adopting new sustainable manure treatment technologies for cleaning livestock manure to ultimately expand and improve their current operations.

*Contest excludes residents of Quebec, businesses with 100 or more employees, TELUS employees and family members of TELUS employees.
