Everyone has heard the FedEx lore: "FedEx started with nothing but one really smart undergrad, one really good term paper and one really big dream." Now they are helping other small start-up companies with the FedEx + Me program piloted in Austin. The FedEx + Me My Story: Austin project spotlights companies that exemplify Austin's innovative spirit. Each round the 5 companies that get the most votes are spotlighted in a professionally produced video promoting their business. On May 18, one deserving participant will be awarded the grand prize of a $5,000 grant to help them grow their business.
They are posting videos from round 3 soon so check back and there are a couple more rounds of voting left for new companies. Here's one of the videos:
Love to see FedEx supporting entrepreneurs in Austin, can't wait to see what city they pick next!
