Help us win the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest

By Sailaja Joshi

Over the past two years, the team at Bharat Babies has launched seven books. This, was no easy feat and much of the funding to help produce these books has come from bootstrapping, angel investors, and pre-order campaigns. 
But the truth is if we're going to expand our reach -if we're going to produce more books, these small funding opportunities will not help. In fact, we know they won't sustain us or help us grow. We need to do more and we need to do it now. 
And that's why we're participating in the FedEx Small Business Grant Competition. This is an opportunity for us, as a little publishing house to transform our business and amplify our social impact. But in order to do this, we need your help. 

We reaching out to our loyal followers, customers, and even those who are new to our brand and asking them to vote for us Yes. We know. It's a lot. But the FedEx Small Business Grant Competition also individuals to vote ONCE every twenty-four hours from NOW until April 5th. 

Voting only takes just a moment, but in doing so you're helping us get closer to the Top 100. From there, we can do our best to make our case and ensure we get into the top ten! 
What happens if you win?

Curious what we might do if we were to win the FedEx Small Business Grant Competition? Well, for one we'd do a bit of a happy dance. 

After that happy dance was out of the way, we'd get to work -sending books off to the printers, asking our illustrators to do some more illustrating, and of course, working with authors to get more manuscripts out into production.
