Fishbowl offers point of sale (POS) and inventory software, training, and coaching support for Grow America’s Utah Springboard candidates
Orem, UT, April 4, 2012 — Fishbowl®, provider of the #1 most requested inventory software for use with QuickBooks, has joined Alan E. Hall, and other founding and community partners of Grow America, in sponsorship and support of Utah’s first Grow America Springboard $1M business competition events in 2012 and 2013. Grow America is a new organization that supports, encourages, and strengthens entrepreneurship wherever and whenever it is found.
The Springboard competitions allow thousands of entrepreneurs to compete for cash awards and services in regionalized competitions to help them “springboard” to success.
“Support for Utah businesses and our local community is fundamental to Fishbowl and to our core values,” said David K. Williams, Fishbowl CEO. “We are extremely pleased to share our resources to support in the creation and strength of the new and growing businesses that will create new jobs in our community and keep our Utah economy strong.”
“We thank Fishbowl for joining with us in contributing to our nation’s economic recovery by supporting entrepreneurial growth, one community at a time,” said Hall. “The work ahead of us is tremendous, and we are extremely grateful for Fishbowl’s community partnership in helping us to accomplish this goal.”
Fishbowl’s headquarters is the location of Utah’s Boom Startup business incubator, housed within the company’s Courage Above Mountains (CAM) facility space. Within the Grow America initiative, Fishbowl will provide coaching and mentoring sessions for Springboard competition candidates (both live and via webcast). The company will also provide access to its Point of Sale software with training (a $2,500 value) for integrating retail merchandise with Fishbowl’s inventory management software to any Springboard competition candidate, and is also providing a copy of the company’s most comprehensive finance and inventory solution-- Fishbowl Enterprise—as a Grow America finalist prize.
