Re:new is in the Wells Fargo Works Project Contest! July 07 2015, 0 Comments


We have some exciting news to share!

Re:new is eligible to win a $25,000 award from Wells Fargo Bank.

We recently applied to the Wells Fargo Works Project Contest for small businesses and nonprofits, and our application was accepted! Committed to championing small businesses and nonprofits, the Wells Fargo Works Project Contest is open to small businesses and nonprofits as a means to support capacity growth through a one-time award of $25,000, plus six months of mentoring from a small business consultant.

Among the thousands of qualified entrants, Re:new made it through Round One!

Here is how the rest of the Wells Fargo Works Project Contest process works:
• Round Two: Starting now through Sunday, July 19, 2015, is public voting.
• Round Three: Applicants receiving the highest number of votes will advance to final judging by a private panel from within Wells Fargo.
• Winners will be notified in early August.

Public voting closes Sunday, July 19th, which means we need you to act quickly -- as in right now!
