Proposal To Barclays

EVO Proposal for Business Grants powered by Barclays EVO, powered by Barclays, will deliver a fast-grant scheme to 3 SMEs in 4-weeks, start to finish. No red tape. No barriers to entry. If it works well in the South-West region (Wiltshire to Taunton, covering Bristol and Bath too), then we table the idea of of rolling out into a few more regions. EVO would promote the imitative using: - LinkedIn - Mailshots to The EVO Business Club Database and Membership - Mailshots via The Business Showcase South West database (tbc) - Other news channels and press - Limited Sponsored Posts on Social Media The need to support businesses is immediate and pressing. To enter, businesses simply need to record a 60 to 90 second piece to camera using their mobile phone and submit their entry online. The theme should be light, fun and is open to discussion with Barclays. We have several suggestions. The scheme is open to all SME businesses and no preference will be given to EVO Members or former guests. The initial entries will be reviewed by EVO and Business Showcase South West Founder Jamie Breese. The first shortlist (approximately the top 25% of entries) will be divided and judged by two trusted associates: Mark Hatcliffe, formerly a Director of Barclays and Major General James Short CB OBE, a former NATO Commander and businessman. From this, the finalists will be submitted to Barclays for the winners to be chosen. Barclays distribute to funds direct to the winners. There would be 3 winners – a first place prize of £10,000, a second prize of £7,500 and a third prize of £2,500. The initiative is ALWAYS presented as ‘Powered by Barclays (Business Banking?). MORE
