FYI: Are you ready to ‘Start Something’?

Although lending to small businesses increased in 2012, the number of micro-loans actually decreased, depriving small business owners of one of their most viable funding options.

In response, Rising Tide Capital, the community-based entrepreneurship organization, created the Start Something Challenge, which consists of a $10,000 cash prize business pitch competition, networking opportunities, access to startup experts, elevator pitch coaching, and general visibility for their venture. The deadline for the competition is this Wednesday, September 18, at 12pm.

Not sure how to approach your pitch? Rising Tide will be hosting a video pitch tutorial at their office this coming Monday, September 16 at 6:30pm, at their offices at 334 Martin Luther King Drive in Jersey City.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could certainly be one of the best in its niche. Very good blog!
