The winning small business, which will be announced Oct. 19, will receive a $50,000 grant and $50,000 marketing support from American Express and will be featured on MSNBC’s small business show, “Your Business.” The nominators of the three small business finalists will each receive a $3,000 American Express Gift Card.

And make sure you dress the part, as Diane von Furstenberg is acting as one of the the three judges for the contest. The others include talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and MSNBC’s small business expert JJ Ramberg, who also is the host of the the previously-mentioned show, “Your Business“.

For more details on the contest, check out the article in MarketingDaily. I never miss an opportunity to see anything relating to the fashion genius Diane von Furstenberg, Ellen always makes me laugh, and I would never turn down business advice. It will be very interesting to discover the winner from three very successful business professionals representing several areas of the business world. Good luck to those who enter and thank you to American Express and NBC Universal for recognizing and promoting the awesome talent in our workforce!
