Tucson firm hosts contest to find a small business to help
TUCSON, AZ — In celebration of 10 years of business, Anchor Wave Internet Solutions will hold a contest and award a website valued at $8,000 to one deserving small business in Southern Arizona.
In 2003, Mike Schmidt launched Anchor Wave Internet Solutions as a 22-year old University of Arizona graduate with a vision to become a leader in the website design industry. Now, 10 years later, Anchor Wave has steadily built the business from a one-man business to a team of 15. Along the way, Anchor Wave has built more than 742 websites for businesses ranging from dentists and doctors to architects, restaurants and casinos. Anchor Wave is a Tucson-grown small business success story and looking to give back.
“The Tucson community has embraced us supporting us as we’ve grown along the way— helping another small business is the least that we can do,” said Mike Schmidt, founder & CEO of Anchor Wave Internet Solutions “We want to see other businesses like us succeed. In our 10 years of business, we have seen that a well-designed and well thought-out website can propel a business or organization into success.”
The contest winner will receive one Website valued at $8,000, Anchor Wave’s WordPress Warranty and one year of hosting services. In addition to the website, the winning company will be eligible for a Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis by Anchor Wave Partner Strongpoint Marketing valued at $2,500 to help guide Website focus and future marketing efforts. Complete rules and information can be found on the Anchor Wave website (www.anchorwave.com).
Applications are due by 5 pm, Friday, September 27 and can be submitted online (www.anchorwave.com). Applicants are encouraged to send supplemental letters of recommendations from peers and customers with their application.
The winning website will be awarded based on how the proposed site will be used to further the business’s goals, promote new products, services and the business’s impact on Tucson economic environment.
“We are more than a website company – we are in a position to help those that don’t always have the experience to know what to do,” said Anthony Rivera, Anchor Wave vice president. “Giving back to the community is a cornerstone of Anchor Wave’s business model.”
The top small business finalists will be selected by a volunteer review panel made up of Tucson business leaders and Anchor Wave’s team. The contest winner will then be selected based on the finalist who receives the most votes on the Anchor Wave Facebook page (facebook.com/anchorwaveinternetsolutions). Voting will close on October 30.
“A decade ago, I could have never imagined how many local businesses we would connect with and that we would be in the position to celebrate our 10th anniversary with this gift to help a local company,” Schmidt said.
