Free Office Space Contest for Veterans by Erie Reader Staff
Publichall

Renaissance Centre, LTD is giving away free office space (including utilities) for one year. Owner Tom Kennedy wants to give back to those who have served our country by helping a business – new or existing. Up to 2,000 square feet of space will be given to the winner. Kennedy stated, “Given the amazing response and success of our contest last year to support small business, we wanted to do something even more special this year, and decided it would be great to serve veterans and their families who would benefit from a hand up in their business.” Veteran-owned businesses are an underserved segment of the economy, and when Kennedy looked back on his own experience in the Navy and how much it helped him in his business, it seemed like a natural fit to make veterans the focus of this year’s office giveaway.

To enter, go to RenaissanceErie.com and submit a paragraph stating how free office space would benefit you and your business. You will then be contacted to schedule a tour of the building. U.S. veterans, those who served, as well as spouses and children are eligible. A panel of judges unrelated to Renaissance Centre will choose the winner.
