  1. Very excited to have won, looking forward to boosting my embroidery biz with some super technology and providing you with more unique, rockin’ threads stitched with a twist!

  2. I have entered my business into this competition. I have real hope of a win but i also see that there are many great businesses that are much further on than Urbantu Wear, some clearly serving really good causes, and some having established a strong customer and client bases, so I also am realistic. That being said, I feel really inspired by this competition. It is a great way to make people aware of importance of small businesses in our communities and around the country! It really isn’t only about the big boys out there; even from zero with an idea, and the will to do something about it everybody can do something. I have found that taking the courage to start marketing and talking publicly about my business because of my entry, has given me confidence that I didn’t really have before. I was hesitant since I am a new business starting out. But I am surprised at the feedback and support that has been coming out of it! So, in a way, even though I am really desperate to win even a small prize, I consider that, the energy that I have had to use to promote my entry into the competition has been really good for me and Urbantu Wear. I have made some really great contacts and really started to announce the presence of my great business; it has been a win win situation, which is something that I really appreciate. Who can ask for better than that? So thanks to QuickBooks! It is a great idea. Let’s. Have more of this please.

  3. Please, the suspense has me gorging jam donuts in anticipation: who are the final 3 companies on the Local Buzz choicest list of new start-ups?
