(The Hosting News) – Steadfast Networks, a provider of Chicago dedicated server hosting, colocation hosting, and cloud hosting service provider has announced a sweepstakes designed to reward innovation and foster growth in the startup tech community. Entitled, “Steadfast Gives Back” the contest will solicit submissions from technology startups and nonprofits that would benefit from Steadfast Networks’s reliable, flexible hosting environment but have not been able to because of expenses, the downturned economy or other hardships.
Organizations interested in entering can do so via Steadfast Networks’ social media initiatives on Facebook and Twitter. They can be found at http://www.facebook.com/steadfastnetworks and http://www.twitter.com/steadfastnet respectively. Submissions should be messaged directly to Steadfast Networks who will then review submissions and begin awarding credits on Cyber Monday, November 28th.
“This is the latest in our ongoing commitment to giving back to the groups that work so hard to push the envelope of progress in technology,” says Karl Zimmerman, CEO of Steadfast Networks, “$1,000 toward Steadfast Networks wide array of services will go a long way for so many companies and we’re very glad we can help this holiday season.”
Small business (those with 500 employees or less) account for around 50 percent of the employment opportunities in the U.S (57.4 million jobs), and firms with 100 employees or less employed 41 million people. During the 2000-2001 fiscal year––the last year statistics were measured––more than 1 million new jobs were created by small businesses. They represent 99.7 percent of all employers and employ half of all private sector employees. Steadfast Networks recognizes the importance of small businesses, startup companies and nonprofits and the major impact they have on the economy.
“The spirit of startup and grassroots technology is alive and well,” explains Matt Wolff, Marketing Manager for Steadfast Networks, “many of us come from small business and nonprofit backgrounds so we understand all too well there are always some technology needs that are left unattended to due to budgets being slashed and funding being cut. At Steadfast we’re going to give back to these companies and fill that need with a $1,000 credit toward new service.”
