At Rockland Trust, relationships are important to us. We understand the impact that small businesses have across our entire community, and are committed to helping them succeed.
Our 2019 Small Business Big Dreams contest will provide small businesses in our community a chance to win $15,000 to help their business grow. We’re asking participants to submit their background information and give an overview of their strengths, challenges, and plan for the future.
The participants will be narrowed down to 3 finalists who will be featured in a video series as they prepare for their final presentation to a panel of judges. The panel will deliberate to choose the winner of the $15,000 grand prize. Both runners-up will receive $2,500.
All finalists will be featured on Boston 25 News.
