UPS, in partnership with Metro Chicago Exports & JPMorgan Chase, announced the 2016 Metro Chicago International X-port Challenge. Listen up all women entrepreneurs and business owners!

This export pitch contest starts with you simply telling UPS-Metro Chicago Exports-JPMorgan Chase how and why you want to grow your global business — and you could be the winner of $10,000 in free export shipping credits and a matching prize of $10,000 in grant dollars.  And the beauty of this offer is that it only take a few minutes of your time to apply.  Imagine all the new customers your business could reach worldwide with these prizes!

The top 10 applicants will be invited to a “Pitch Off” event at Chase Tower in downtown Chicago on Thursday, October 20, 2016. These 10 businesses will have an opportunity interact with an illustrious panel of expert judges.
