Small Businesses: Share Your Innovation Story for a Chance at $5000

­Businesses like yours create two out of every three new jobs in the US. You’re the economic engine that keeps this country growing. And you somehow manage to do it all without the budget of a Fortune 500. If it were up to us at RingCentral, every week would be National Small Business Week.

But since the actual one is coming up in May, we thought this would be a great time to launch our National Small Business Week Contest. Keep reading because there could be money in it for you.

What is the RingCentral National Small Business Week Contest?

The contest is simple. Record a short video (1–3 minutes) sharing how you use RingCentral in an innovative way to improve your business and submit it to us.

Our judges will select the top videos, and we’ll award some pretty big prizes:

  • Honorable mention #4:      $2,500 gift card
  • Honorable mention #3:      $2,500 gift card
  • Honorable mention #2:      $2,500 gift card
  • Honorable mention #1:      $2,500 gift card
  • Grand prize winner:             $5,000 gift card

You could also win fame and glory because we’ll publish the winning videos on RingCentral’s homepage and post them on our social media channels. Can’t buy publicity like that. (Well, you can, but it’s expensive.)

 

You know you’ve got a RingCentral innovation story

So, how has your company used RingCentral to do remarkable work? You know you’ve got a cool story worth sharing. Have you found a creative way to:

Or maybe you’ve found a totally different way to innovate with RingCentral that we haven’t even thought of. Please tell us about it—we love stories like that.
