SAP and Changemakers recently launched global online competition The Power of Small: Entrepreneurs Strengthening Local Economies.

Through this global competition we’re challenging innovators to share ideas that build the capacity of emerging entrepreneurs to enable them to scale their businesses. Entrants may effectively link small businesses to larger supply chains, unlock growth financing for established small businesses, or facilitate cross-sector collaboration to provide infrastructure that support small business and entrepreneurial growth.

Four winners will each receive a comprehensive capital, technology and promotion package from SAP – including a cash prize of $10,000 and a technology donation to optimize performance and scale operations. Entries submitted before July 25th are also eligible for an early entry prize of $500. The final deadline for entries is September 5th, 2012.

To learn more and submit an entry, visit us at www.changemakers.com/powerofsmall and follow along on twitter using #PowerofSmall. We would appreciate it also if you could share about this competition to your network.
