Information you’ll need to provide

For you social post, you will need to include the following information:

  • What your business does.
  • A challenge your business has overcome in the past and a challenge you continue to struggle with.
  • How the grant funds will help you overcome your challenge and detailed specifics about how you plan to use the prize money.
  • Your unique voting link from step 2 (or add the link in your bio for Instagram) and encourage your followers and customers to vote for your business. Individuals can only vote for a business one time during each grant round.

Helpful tips

  • If you do not receive an email confirmation with your unique link within 24 hours, email grants@nav.com.
  • Do not use a story as your entry post, this will disqualify you. 
  • Let your (and your business’s) personality shine in your post.
  • Don’t be afraid to share details. Your post should provide a really good look at who you are, what you do and why your business needs the money. 
  • Use photos or make a video. Words are great, but Nav loves visuals too. Show them your business through video and photos. And, remember, it doesn’t have to be professionally done.
  • Take a look at Nav’s past winners before you craft your application. Read through the blog posts and watch the videos of previous winners to give you an idea of what they're looking for in a business owner.
  • Make sure your customers know to vote for you. Create multiple social media posts and spread the word about this opportunity for your business. Be sure to share your unique voting link with your customers and followers as much as you can.
