Deadline Extended for Small Business Video CompetitionDate:2017-11-02 16:55:40
GENEVA - The deadline for the video competition launched by Google, in partnership with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the WTO, has been extended until November 17, 2017. According to the WTO, the “Small Businesses Going Global Video Challenge” invites small businesses to send a short video showing how they have used internet technology to participate in international trade and reach customers worldwide.
The winning entries will be announced at the WTO's 11th Ministerial Conference in Buenos Aires in December 2017. The company submitting the best video wins a trip to a digital masterclass at Google.
The contest is intended to help show how micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) can leverage internet technologies – such as cloud services, apps, payment solutions, communication and productivity tools, real-time analytics, translation tools and video platforms – to become global exporters.
Small businesses interested in participating in the video competition are required to submit a short video of no more than four minutes shot using a mobile phone or other device.
The competition is the first successful proposal under the ICC/WTO “Small Business Champions” initiative.
