Finalists to attend the Inc. 5000 conference

 Local business owner Neal Jacob is a finalist to win a new Sprinter Cargo Van from Mercedes-Benz and Inc. Magazine, and he needs your votes to help him win the grand prize.

Jacob, of Front Royal, owner of Neal Sharpens, LLC, was perusing Facebook one night when an ad caught his eye. Like most people, Jacob tends to scroll right past the ads, but this one was different. This one said that he could win a Sprinter Cargo Van. “I knew I wasn’t going to win unless I entered,” Jacob said, “so I created an entry and sent it in.” The contest entry involved answering three short essay questions.  Jacob also recorded a video to prove his business’s need for the Sprinter Van.  “I thought the selection period was over when I received both a phone call and an email informing me that I’m a finalist. I was driving when the notification popped up on my smartwatch and I had to find a place to stop.”

Out of the thousands of entries submitted to Inc. Magazine, Jacob is one of four finalists.  The grand prize winner will be determined by a combination of votes from the public and also members of the Inc. 5000. Jacob needs your support. You can vote for him by visiting https://contests.inc.com/mbvans. You may submit an unlimited number of votes per day, beginning Monday, September 16th and ending Friday, October 12th.

“The Van Built for Business” is a contest sponsored by Inc. Magazine and Mercedes-Benz. It’s designed to give small businesses a hand in growing their businesses and serving the community. Jacob and the other finalists will attend the Inc. 5000 Conference in Phoenix, AZ, where the winner of the Sprinter will be announced on October 12.
