The Small Business Challenge – Online
Take part in the small business challenge to help us support small local businesses!
It doesn’t have to be specifically black owned, although that may be the criteria for some of our challenges, we aim to support all small local businesses.
So, what’s the challenge?
Every weekday throughout the month of February each participant will be sent an email containing a specific challenge.
For example, Monday might be to find a small local business beginning with the letter C and purchase an item from them. Tuesday might be to find a small local business and send some words of encouragement to them. Wednesday could be to reach out to a local black owned business and ask them if they’ve heard about the Black Pounds Project.
Cash prizes and merchandise will be given to those who complete the most challenges throughout the month of February. The challenge will operate a points system and the leader board will be updated daily via The Black Pounds Project website.
Let’s have some fun! Hopefully by the end of it you’ll have found some local businesses you love and wish to support long term.
In order for your entry to qualify the small business must be registered and should not turnover more than £10 million annually.
Take a screenshot or photo of the business you’ve engaged with and send it to us via email. If you make a purchase, take a screenshot or photo of your receipt and email that over to us as well at firstname.lastname@example.org
The challenge will operate a points system and the leader board will be updated weekly via our website.
Cash Prizes and rewards will be given to those who earn the most points:
1st Place prize – Black Pounds Project monumental coin, t-shirt, £20 to spend with any of the businesses on our mentorship scheme, and an additional £20 to spend anywhere you like.
2nd Place prize – Black Pounds monumental coin, t-shirt and £15 to spend with any of the businesses on our mentorship scheme, and an additional £15 to spend anywhere you like.
