GiftCardRescue.com Honored as Semi-Finalist in Forbes.com’s Third Annual “Boost Your Business” Editorial Contest

GiftCardRescue.com, a leading gift card exchange Web site, today announced it has advanced to the second stage of Forbes.com’s third annual “Boost Your Business” editorial contest. Dwindled down from thousands of contestants, this innovative company is one of twenty small companies selected as semi-finalists who celebrate the unique spirit and sacrifice it takes to build a business. Voting opens for the top five contestants on Aug. 17, 2009, at Forbes.com.

Now in its third year, the “Boost Your Business” contest was designed to replicate the challenging process of raising money from professional investors, as well as to encourage entrepreneurs to think more critically and strategically about their businesses. In December 2009, one well-deserving small company will be awarded $100,000 in capital funds.

“To be named a semi-finalist in the ‘Boost Your Business’ contest is not only an honor, but is a reminder of what I set out to achieve when I started GiftCardRescue.com,” stated Kwame Kuadey, CEO, GiftCardRescue.com. “Starting a business during a challenging, and often times discouraging, recession has challenged me to test my skills and determination in making my company become all that I’ve dreamed.”

GiftCardRescue.com is an innovative Web site that allows customers to sell unused gift cards for cash or exchange gift cards for brand new gift cards of choice. The company also sells gift cards at discounts of up to 50% off.

Voting for the top five contestants closes on Sept. 30, 2009. More information about “Boost Your Business” can be found at Forbes.com.
