COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – On Monday, the Carolina Panthers and Lenovo announced the return of the Empowering the Carolinas competition.
The competition aims to support small businesses in the region. It is part of Lenovo’s Evolve Small campaign and was launched in 2021 to celebrate small businesses through grants and product donations, mentoring and community engagement.
For the second year, the organization is working together to select 10 winning companies to receive $5,000 in technology upgrades from Lenovo. Businesses have a choice of three upgrade packages that best fit their needs.
All 10 companies will receive tickets to the Panthers vs. Buffalo Bills preseason game scheduled for August 26th. Winners will be recognized during the halftime show, and a grand prize winner will receive a $100,000 promotional package with the franchise during the NFL season.
Lenovo and Microsoft will also mentor and support the winner in engaging with the community for long-term success.
Nominations for qualifying businesses in the Carolinas will be accepted online through July 29, 2022. To nominate a company, click on the link here.
