The borderland is full of so many amazing and interesting small businesses and if you’ve ever spent a day at a local market you’ll agree.

Now, I may not be a small business owner myself but I’ve seen the hard work and dedication that some local small business owners go through when they first startup.

It’s not easy, and organizers from El Paso’s Upper Valley Market know that so they’re hoping they can help make things a little easier for one aspiring small business owner in the borderland!

“We are looking for aspiring small business owners in need of some help to get going,” read the caption on El Paso’s Upper Valley Market Instagram’s most recent post.

The Upper Valley Farmer’s and Artist Market is one of El Paso’s biggest markets that features dozens of locally owned businesses.

In a post shared on their Instagram page, Market organizers shared that they are looking to play a part in making a small business' dream a reality!

“Getting started can be exciting but overwhelming. There are a lot of things that need to be done to get your dream up and running and resources may be limited. We know the feeling, and that is why we are selecting an entrepreneur to meet a need for their business,” said Market organizers.

Organizers went on to explain how they plan on helping out these small business owners by mentioning they will help out organizations if they need new equipment, laptops, or even assistance with paying for their businesses' LLC registration fees.

“Or maybe it's a business seminar you want to attend, we got you. We want to know your top THREE business needs,” read the post.

If you’re a small business owner that wants to jump at this great opportunity then here are the details you need to know:

  • Create a one-page business plan packed with details of your business and your top three business needs.
