We take pleasure in announcing that Megan Dean, the owner of Moth Attack, is the recipient of the current Small Business Grant. With her impressive enthusiasm and love for building and designing custom steel bicycles and components, she instantly grabbed the hearts of our regulars and stood out amongst hundreds of other small business owners. Congratulations!
During the final month-long voting round of the grant, Moth Attack emerged as the leader, with 30 % of the votes. Megan is followed by another exceptional business, Bellybuttonboutique.com, LLC, who got 24 % of the votes.
In the coming days, we will be contacting Megan Dean to get her scoop on winning an Idea Cafe grant, and to arrange the awarding of the $1,000.00 cash grant.
As a rule, all Idea Cafe grant winners provide monthly reports on how their business is doing since receiving Idea Cafe's Grant. And this time we won’t make an exception. Megan Dean will pass on her business wisdom and a health dose of her entrepreneurial spirit to Idea Café regulars through monthly updates, posted on Idea Café’s blog. So, check back regularly to see how Megan Dean leverages the cash infusion to build her business.
In the past, some other inspirational entrepreneurs have won Idea Café grant. The previous grant winners Go Green Go and WOMbeat!, are well known for their insightful reports and useful tips. Leah Larson, not only won our grant but went on to win the $100,000.00 Wells Fargo's Someday Stories contest. Another grant winner Percy Marchand and his company, Marchand Ink, were featured in The London Times and New Orleans Magazine. In one of his updates for Idea Café, Percy commented: "Winning this grant propelled me into a spiral of success and accolades."
We congratulate Megan on this win. We feel this is but the beginning of many good things to come.
If you're one of the extremely talented applicants who didn't win this grant, you'll have another chance: the ninth Idea Café’s Cash Grant will be open for applications in mid January, 2010. So check back regularly for updates. It is up to you to be the next winner!
