Technology is one of the fundamental reasons why today's small businesses can break through with innovative products, compete head to head with large corporations, and even change the very rules of the game. The modern paradigm of entrepreneurship -- fueled by cost-effective and available technology -- emphasizes flexibility and responsiveness, enabling small businesses to contend for market position in a way that was not even thinkable just a few years ago.

Comcast Business Class and Inc. are awarding four deserving companies with office productivity makeovers — providing the winning companies with a prize package of tools and resources to take their business to the next level.

Winners of the Productivity@Work Contest will receive a custom technology audit and Comcast Business Class solutions valued over $40,000 including:

  • Private small business consulting session with Rob Adams, noted author and small business consultant from the University of Texas at Austin's McCombs School of Management, where he is also the Director of Moot Corp.
