Are you a small business owner based in Los Angeles?
If so, you can win $ 10,000 and other prizes courtesy of Mastercard, Major League Baseball, and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
During the All-Star Game in Colorado last week, MLB and Mastercard announced that they are renewing their partnership agreement. As part of the announcement, they unveiled a new competition to help small businesses in three baseball cities struggled with the last year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
They call it the Home Team Advantage Small Business Contest, and small business owners in Los Angeles, Boston, and Atlanta are all eligible to enter.
A grand prize winner from each city will win $ 10,000 and a trip to a 2021 World Series game. In addition, the winning small business will be celebrated on the field at Dodger Stadium with custom stadium signage. The winning company will also be invited to an exclusive dinner event in the stadium.
“While small businesses faced challenges during the pandemic, they demonstrated exceptional resilience and determination,” said Cheryl Guerin, EPP Marketing and Communications in North America at Mastercard. “Together with our Major League Baseball partners, we are committed to celebrating and supporting small businesses that serve as the backbone of our communities and are excited to provide the resources and digital tools to help them grow and thrive . “
In addition, the winners will receive the new Digital Doors Toolkit from Mastercard. The Digital Doors toolkit includes the digital diagnostic service, individual business advice, and offers and resources from Jobble, Mastercard Trust Center, Microsoft Advertising, SimplyPayMe and Zoho. The toolkit also includes cybersecurity tools designed to help small businesses counter cyber threats.
The contest opened on July 15, and eligible LA-based business owners are encouraged to enter the contest here: mastercard.us/hometeamadvantage.
