In celebration of International Women’s Month and in an effort to help empower women, House of CB founder and recent Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree, Conna Walker, has launched a contest for current and future women business owners to receive cash injections for their businesses up to $13,000. Applicants’ business plans will be reviewed by Walker. There will be three cash injection prizes: $2,600 for third place, $6,500 for second place, and $13,000 for first place. Winners will be announced March 31, 2019.
“I was so fortunate to be able to start with a £3,000 loan, but not everyone has that luxury, so this year for International Women’s Day, I’m looking to give a cash injection to 3 women owned companies or start ups who I feel deserve it the most,” Walker said.
The cash injection is completely free, in that no monetary amount or percentage is deducted from the winner or the winner’s company. Being a woman is the main qualifier for this contest. Entrants do not have to be in a specific industry or possess a certain company value. The company can be new, old or a company in infancy.
“I’m so proud to be a woman, and so proud of everything women have and can achieve. We deserve equal pay, equal respect and equal opportunity and I hope that #CBWOMEN4WOMEN will help other women smash glass ceilings and live their dreams,” Walker said.
To enter, applicants are to post their business in a social media post (Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook) with the hashtag #CBWOMEN4WOMEN, as well as filling out the email form at www.houseofcb.com. Applicants must also submit a business plan. Applicants must have an email and social media entry to qualify. Winners will be chosen on March 31.
