PayPal salutes the spirit of entrepreneurship

The world of entrepreneurship is a tough one to crack. You know that to be a successful entrepreneur you must dream big, take risks and be prepared to fail. Countless budding entrepreneurs turn their dreams into reality with the help of enablers such as PayPal providing a gateway to receive payments internationally. PayPal has been working to enable hundreds of thousands of local Indian businesses of all sizes to expand their businesses across borders, reach a global network of 192 million active customer accounts in 200 markets, and receive payments faster via PayPal for the goods and services they export.

One of PayPals strongest value proposition is Paypal Seller Protection which safeguards up to the full amount on eligible sales if the client/buyer raises a false claim for refund.

As part of its efforts to salute the spirit of entrepreneurship and support budding business owners, PayPal is now holding a competition that will allow entrepreneurs the chance to benefit from its global reputation as an established payment gateway – and even win a trip to Singapore. The premise of the PayPal Entrepreneur Contest is to provide an online platform that identifies budding entrepreneurial talent and as a gesture of appreciation rewards their achievement. Positive encouragement from an entrepreneurial company like PayPal and from the general public through votes will allow local businesses to expand their reach beyond India.

If you are aware of a budding business owner that would benefit from some well-earned recognition you can now nominate them for a chance at winning PayPals Entrepreneur Contest. If you have a startup you can even nominate yourself!

Simply click here to sign up and submit your nomination.

All nominated candidates must be 18+ years of age with a business of their own, and as mentioned above you can also nominate yourself. The contest, however, is not open to non-resident Indian (NRIs).

The PayPal Entrepreneur Contest started on 27th December 2016, and has already received a multitude of entries. Entries close on 6th February 2017, so get your nominations in soon.
