Cut the Ribbon and Win!

National Small Business Week kicks off in the United States on May 12. At LightSpeed, we’re big believers in small business – our software helps thousands of retail entrepreneurs both in the U.S. and abroad grow and manage their businesses. But as entrepreneurs ourselves, we know that going out on your own isn’t easy. That’s why we’re launching Cut the Ribbon, an initiative to encourage new store owners. Every month, for the next year, we’ll be giving away a $1,000 Visa Gift Card to the LightSpeed customer that posts our favorite picture of their store’s ribbon-cutting ceremony to our Facebook page. At the end of a year, we’ll award the grand prize, which includes 5 years of LightSpeed service, a professional promo video and PR support from our marketing team (valued at $20,000) to the store that’s shared the most compelling photo and story.

Have you recently opened a new store with LightSpeed POS? Look out for your Cut the Ribbon welcome package in the mail (you’ll know it when you see it). Then simply: Snip, Snap and Share. Organize a ribbon cutting ceremony at your store, take a great photo (the more creative the better) and post it to our Facebook page at Don’t forget, we also want to hear your story (in 50 words or less)!

Get your scissors and camera ready— we can’t wait to see what you come up with! Find us on Twitter @LightSpeedPOS and on Facebook.
