Win the Small Business Startup Kit

It’s tough slogging out there, entrepreneurs, isn’t it?! That’s why we’ve created an opportunity for one among you to win a Small Business Startup Kit, designed to get your home business’s world headquarters in gear! And it all happens right here in this blog post.

The Small Business Startup Kit was assembled in collaboration with Office Depot, which is supplying all the cool equipment and services included in the Kit. Here’s what in it:

  • 1 Toshiba Satellite® U405-S2911 Notebook Computer With Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor
  • 1 Fellowes® PS 79ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder
  • 1 Lexmark X 7675 All-In-One Printer/Copier/Scanner/Fax Machine
  • 1 $100 Gift Card to use at Office Depot

So, why are we doing this?

For StartupNation, this is all about helping you remove the barriers to starting and growing your business. That’s why we included essentials like the notebook computer, all-in-one printer, and the jam proof shredder. (By the way, trust me – you want to use a shredder. I just visited a transfer station where our garbage is dumped. You could see people’s personal papers flying all around in the wind.)

In any event, with these necessities on hand, the winner will have a well-oiled machine ready to support him or her on a path to success.

Here’s all you have to do for a chance to win this giveaway:

It’s that simple, folks!

We will then select a comment/answer AT RANDOM and name that person the winner. One comment is allowed per person. Must be 18 years of age or older to participate and based in the U.S. 

We will stop taking comments in this blog post at midnight EASTERN TIME on March 13, 2009. We will announce the winner on March 16, 2009 within this blog entry as a comment with instructions on how the selected winner should contact us with a SHIP TO address. The suite of equipment and gift card will be delivered shortly thereafter. Your only problem at that point is… what excuses do you have left NOT to “start it up”?!

All StartupNation spam rules apply and StartupNation retains the right to delete any blog comments it deems to be spam. If the selected winner does not respond to instructions by March 18, another winner will be selected at random on March 19, and a similar process will be used to reach them.

Jump in! Become a winner! We look forward to reading your comments.

As always, we want you to start it up and we hope this Small Business Startup Kit helps!
