American Express Promotion Helps People Kick-Start Their Business Idea

June 25, 2013, Written By Justin Hefner

Over the next six months, credit card giant American Express will be giving 70 people $2,000 each to jump-start their business idea. This is done through a program called #PassionProject, which allows users to share their ideas, innovations and creations with the world. This will be marketed through popular social networking sites, like YouTube and Tumblr. Hence, the Twitter-friendly name.

To enter the contest, you must be a resident of the United States. You must submit a photo that represents your idea, as well as a brief description of your passion project. There will be seven phases of the competition, ultimately leading to 10 winners in each phase. The dates and specific submission details for the contest can be found in the #PassionProject official rules.

Winners will be selected based on creativity, quality and adherence to the theme. Each of the 70 winners of the competition will receive a $2,000 American Express gift card to help start their idea. The gift cards cannot be redeemed for cash, and they must be used on expenses to start the project. A list of the winners will be posted on AmexPassionProject.com after each phase of the competition.

If you have a project that you would love to begin, enter #PassionProject now. You might earn $2,000 to use toward your this adventure.
