Small Business Owners Win a Chance to Travel for Free on British Airways

| September 9, 2010 | 1 Comment

face to face contestIt is time for the 2010 Face-to-Face program at British Airways. Basically the contest will give 250 US small business owners and entrepreneurs the chance to build relationships and their businesses abroad. This provides a great opportunity for businesses owners to have the ability to travel and meet clients and customers who normally are out of their reach financially. The program also offers up a great group of advisors to assist the businesses who end up winning.

How to Submit:

  • Beginning today, entrepreneurs and small business owners looking to expand or enhance their business internationally may submit a video or essay of their best “elevator” pitch at www.ba.com/contest. Entering the contest provides a chance to earn a free flight to London or anywhere in the British Airways network to facilitate face-to-face meetings with potential and existing customers and business partners.
  • Prior to the New York to London flight early next year, all 250 winners will have the exclusive opportunity to attend British Airways’ Face of Opportunity event on Wed, Feb. 2, 2011, in New York City, where they will receive firsthand tips and advice from influential international business experts while networking with venture capitalists, renowned entrepreneurs, media and other small business owners.
  • Three selected winners also will have the chance to present their business plans to a panel of celebrity entrepreneur judges, including Bill Rancic, Barbara Corcoran and Bethenny Frankel, for a chance to win a British Airways Business Opportunity Grant, featuring additional free flights to London, or anywhere in the British Airways global network.

The Advisory Board:

This is a great chance if your a small business owner and do any type of business overseas. Or maybe you are looking to expand over there but the costs have held you back.

    Why not scrap the event in New York and just give one winner a year of free flights on British Airways? This would certainly increase the number of responses and their overall creativity. Also, providing only a handful of free flights right now assumes that business deals can be conducted in one fell swoop. In reality, however, it takes multiple meetings to acquire clients and build their trust, particularly if a business is on a different continent.
