Do You Have What It Takes To Be 2016’s Modern ONTRApreneur?

Anyone can say that they’re an entrepreneur, but to be truly successful you have to be dedicated, passionate, driven, and willing to grind harder than anyone else you know. Your business requires your full attention all of your time and more energy than you thought humanly possible, but you know it’s worth it because your business is your passion.


Not everyone understands how hard entrepreneurs have to work so that their business can make a positive impact AND so they can balance all their priorities outside of work at the same time. Sure, your employees and peers know how many hours you put in, but outside of the workplace you rarely get recognition.

Until now. 

ONTRAPORT is searching - worldwide - to discover entrepreneurs and small business owners who have overcome the odds and are taking revolutionary steps to grow their businesses.

In today’s competitive online landscape, customers demand innovation, creativity and remarkable experiences beyond the scope of traditional marketing tactics that may have worked in the past. Visionary companies with a unique twist such as Rails Camp West, Thrive Market and BloomThat have succeeded in generating and maintaining interest in their products through social media, content marketing, email campaigns and other unconventional marketing and sales methods. Every day, entrepreneurs like you are finding innovative and unconventional ways to meet the needs of their market… and we want to hear about them!

Whether you have developed a beautiful and high-perfoming website, revolutionized your sales, created a kickass marketing campaign, successfully scaled your business or have a truly inspiring entrepreneurial story - share it with us!

How are you embodying the creativity, dedication, influence and innovation it takes to be a modern entrepreneur?

We have a passion for entrepreneurs, and we want to give you the recognition you deserve.

With a $5,000 cash grand prize and more amazing ONTRAperks, you have five different chances to win!

What Are the Modern ONTRApreneur Awards?

We are spotlighting businesses who excel in one or all of the main pillars of entrepreneurship: Publishing, Marketing, Selling and Organization. The business leaders we will recognize have overcome roadblocks during their entrepreneurial journey and serve as encouragement and inspiration for other entrepreneurs to strategically grow their businesses.

With five chances to win, contest entrants are able to showcase how they have overcome traditional hurdles of small businesses and ways they have creatively tackled problems that other entrepreneurs and business owners are facing.

Contestants will be judged based on the creativity of their answers, the success of their unique marketing and sales campaigns, their online presence, and their business operations.

Over $5,000 in prizes, ONTRApalooza tickets, free ONTRAPORT accounts and more will be given to five business owners who represent what it means to be a modern entrepreneur. Winning contestants will be recognized on stage at ONTRApalooza 2016.

If you or your business excels in publishing, marketing, selling or organization, you just might be the Modern ONTRApreneurs we are looking for!
