It’s been said that having a good “elevator speech” can help propel your career forward. For 250 small business owners and entrepreneurs, it can also be the ticket to free flights.
For the second straight year, British Airways is implementing its Face of Opportunity campaign, which gives entrepreneurs looking to expand their business a chance to win a free round-trip flight anywhere British Airways flies. Contestants can visit the contest page and submit a video essay or elevator pitch – an approximately thirty-second overview of their company - and the winners can take advantage of the free airfare to hold face-to-face meetings with business contacts and expand internationally.
The 250 winners will also be given the opportunity to attend the Face of Opportunity event on Feb. 2 in New York to rub shoulders with business experts and other entrepreneurs. Three select winners will also get to present their business plan to a celebrity panel, with a chance to win additional free flights.
British Airways launched the program in July 2009, ultimately giving 600 entrepreneurs the chance to travel abroad and grow their business. Last year’s winners are featured at the British Airways website.
