EAP to celebrate small businesses for innovative business practices during pandemic

The Entrepreneurial Accelerator Program (EAP) has announced that it will be hosting an online contest celebrating North Louisiana’s small businesses that exemplified the most innovative practices through the COVID-19 shutdown. These businesses will be nominated and voted on by the public, and the award will be $2,500 cash and billboard advertising. 

The EAP Innovation Hero contest will begin Monday, June 1st and run through Saturday, July 4th, when the public will be able to nominate small businesses in all twenty-one parishes in North Louisiana. A top-five will be chosen based on the number of nominations, and public voting will begin July 15 through August 1st

The public will be able to nominate the small business of their choice by visiting the EAP website and filling out a three-question form. Anyone in any location is able to vote once a day until August 1st.

As the Covid-19 shutdown forced many small businesses to close their doors, there were many small businesses that came up with innovative ways to continue to serve customers and expand their offerings. Staying open meant being creative, and the team at EAP wants to celebrate those businesses.
