Hello all - Gary Spedding here with a note about grants and a request for your votes.

Chase Bank and Social Media Interests are promoting a series of 250K Grants to businesses who bank with Chase and have been running for two years. Several brewers are on board and we also applied to build our testing business that several ADI members utilize (thank you for that). We and other businesses would like your votes please.You can vote once per business but for as many businesses as you like. You may also find details to apply yourself.

Please check this link - https://www.missionsmallbusiness.com/ - and vote for us (and spread the word!).

Thanking you and best wishes to all applicants and all of the ADI members,

I've checked out the rules to this "grant" and their rules pretty plainly state:

"Prohibited Content" includes, but is not limited to, content that, a Sponsor, in its sole and absolute discretion, determines violates the Program Rules or any applicable law, as well as content that promotes, suggests or encourages:

  • gambling, including without limitation, any content related to online casinos, sports books, bingo or poker;
  • the use of firearms/weapons/ammunition, any illegal drugs, prostitution, pornography, nudity, profanity or other adult content, violence, or the use of alcohol or tobacco products;"

So, I'm confused how any of us in this industry could be applicable to even be in the running since we're all here in some capacity to "encourage" the "use of alcohol" products. No?

Also, Gary, you didn't mention how to vote for YOU. Your link goes right to their homepage, and the attachment doesn't have any details either. Can you post some more info about where people can vote for you? I'm obviously unfamiliar with the testing service you offer, but how does it not fall under the "prohibited content"?
