Gift Card Rescue, a leading site in the gift card exchange industry, has just been announced as a semi-finalist in the Forbes.com Third Annual ‘Boost Your Business’ Competition. “To be named a semi-finalist in the ‘Boost Your Business’ contest is not only an honor, but is a reminder of what I set out to achieve when I started GiftCardRescue.com,” stated Kwame Kuadey, CEO.
The Forbes Boost Your Business competition is aimed at entrepreneurs looking to take their businesses to the next level with a boost of capital. What’s up for grabs? $50,000 in cash and another $50,000 in advertising for usage on Forbes.com. Kwame plans to use the money to further develop the functionality of the Gift Card Rescue website as well as expand the marketing efforts towards certain people who value cash more then a gift card. For example, many college students like myself would prefer some extra cash in their wallet rather than a gift card.

While we are ecstatic at being chosen as a semi-finalist, our hunger isn’t quite satisfied yet. We need your help to make it to the finals of the Boost Your Business Competition, where Kwame will get his chance to present his detailed business plans in front of a panel of prestigious Forbes Judges and the millions of readers out there on the web.
