Have you ever wished that you could go back to the day you started your business and give yourself a piece of advice? If you had the chance, what would you say? We want to know!

You’ve learned a lot while running your business, from sales and marketing to customer service, financial management and staffing. Now is your chance to share some of your hard-earned wisdom. What is one thing you wish someone had told you when you were just starting out? How would it have changed things for you and your business? Put it in a letter to your younger self and send it in for a chance to win.

What’s in it for the winners?

Four businesses will be selected and will receive:

  • $500 to help you realize the big potential of your small business
  • A featured story on Santander’s Business First site that will be promoted to thousands of small businesses

In addition…

We’ll be compiling some of the best pieces of advice into a resource for business owners, meaning you have the opportunity to help businesses to thrive and grow. Let’s celebrate your success, determination, and the path you have taken to get where you are. And at the same time, use your experience to lift up others and support the business community.

  • Contest opens May 2, 2022 and runs through June 30, 2022.
