Six Cincinnati Based Firms Team Up to Offer $100,000 Business Makeover

One Cincinnati Small Business Will Receive $100K in Professional Services

 

Cincinnati, OH – January 14, 2013 – What would an infusion of $100,000 do for your business?

That’s exactly what six Cincinnati based professional services firms intend to find out as they’ve teamed up to offer the 2013 $100K Business Makeover, designed to help spur growth in area small businesses.

 

There is no entry fee, no strings, no catch, nor any obligation for any for profit small business, under $50 million in annual revenue, to compete for the award. For more information and to apply, log on to www.100KBusinessMakeover.com. Entries will be accepted now through March 16, and the award presented at an event on April 16th.

 

The awards presentation will feature a small business workshop and keynote presentation, along with critical business tools provided by the participating businesses to help kick start the business of all attendees. Details regarding the event and speaker are forthcoming.

 

The $100K Business Makeover team combines the expertise of such noted Cincinnati professional services firms as Ember Carriers, strategic HR, inc., V2 Strategies, RightPath CFO, Web4Marketing, and The Eisen Agency who will provide a combined $100,000 in services to the winner.

 

“We are each blessed to be leading successful businesses, but we recognize that one major reason we’re successful is that we have support from some fantastic organizations that allow us to better focus on our core competencies,” The Eisen Agency CEO Rodger Roeser says. “Not all small businesses know where to turn, so we’re combining our expertise to enable one small business to gain an incredible competitive edge, while sharing with other small businesses how important it is to have experts and outsourced help and advice available.”

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
