Amegy Bank seeks nominees for small business grants

Prospera Healthcare won the top prize in Amegy Bank’s 2023 Spotlight on Small Business program.

Small Business Week has come and gone but Amegy Bank is keeping small businesses in focus with its second annual Spotlight on Small Business grants program.

Offered in partnership with Live Nation, the program recognizes small businesses in the Dallas-Fort Worth area by encouraging members of the public to nominate their favorite “mom ’n’ pop shop” for a chance to win cash prizes and free promotions, Amegy said in a news release.

Nominations will be accepted online through July 26 with one grand prize winner and two runners-up to be announced in September.

Nominees must be small (under 500 employees), independently owned and operated (not connected to a large corporation) for-profit companies in operation for more than two years and with annual revenue below $20M; must operate primarily in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area; must be non-partisan.

The grand prize winner will receive a $5,000 check and two tickets to a select Live Nation-produced and promoted concert in the United States during the 2025 concert season (excludes festivals). In addition to the tickets, the winner will be treated to round-trip, economy class air transportation for two; one double occupancy standard hotel room for two nights/three days; and a $200 prepaid cash card to use toward ground transportation.

The first-place runner-up will receive a check for $2,500 and the second-place runner-up will receive a check for $1,000.

Last year’s grand-prize winner was Prospera Healthcare. Runners-up were Dallas-based Underdog Kennels and Alvarado-based Infinity Diesel Trucks.
