Here's How You Can Win $25K to Improve Your Business

By Sarah Wald

Hey you, entrepreneur extraordinaire...we know you're onto something great.

Whether it's a new e-commerce website, a more efficient manufacturing process or world domination, we know that to take your small business to the next level you need a) more capital and b) guidance from a seasoned mentor.

Wells Fargo is giving exactly that to five small business owners. Now through June 30, 2014 business owners in the U.S. can enter the Wells Fargo Works Project, a contest in which five winners will receive $25,000 plus business mentorship and 25 finalists will each win $1,000. Entries can be videos (up to two and a half minutes long) or submitted as an essay (up to 600 words) and photo.

The project will celebrate the inspiring stories of business owners across the country from the "Aha!" moments, to the important missions that keep them going each day and even the bumps and snarls along the way.

Watch a video series, see other entries and enter the contest here.
