2016 Small Business Makeover Contest Logo

Small Business Makeover

Update: The River Heights Chamber of Commerce is pausing the Small Business Makeover project for 2016 and will revisit it in the future.  Thank you to the businesses and members who gave their input and support of the program. We look forward to working with you again!

For more information or interest in supporting the Makeover in the future, please contact the River Heights Chamber of Commerce.

What is it?

The Small Business Makeover Contest is an initiative of the Chamber to support our vision to promote the business community and the growth of a local small business in our area, AND our mission to aggressively promote the interests of the business community. What better way to promote a business’s interests than to award them with the resources of in-kind donations and financial support from the business community in a business makeover?!

How can you support the makeover?

There are three ways to get involved:

  1. You can be a featured sponsor
  2. You can provide your business’s in-kind product/service
  3. New this year, you can give a cash donation(for as little as $25)

Why sponsor?

Sponsors will receive recognition in Chamber communications including, but not limited to, Chamber Weekly Update email, press releases, social media, videos, blogs and website of the contest. In addition, In-Kind Sponsors will receive recognition for providing their product/service at the winning business.   What a great opportunity to support small business growth, and be a part of a makeover project giving opportunity for new potential business and referrals. This initiative has the potential to draw state-wide attention from the media and is a great way to demonstrate your company’s support of small business and a community outreach initiative. 

Need an idea of an in-kind service?

Services such as marketing/design, website development, digital marketing/seo, signage, printing, public relations, advertising products/services, office supplies/services, financial, accounting, painting, remodeling, landscape and photography are some ideas of how you can participate!

How can you apply to win?

  • Located in the River Heights region
  • Member of the River Heights Chamber of Commerce (no minimum required)
  • In business for a minimum of three years
  • For-profit business
