Owned Growth Stories 2020: Enter for Your Chance to Win 25k Toward Growing Your Business

Launching and growing a business is a challenge. Layer in today’s ever-changing environment and growth may seem impossible. But every business that overcomes a challenge has a great story to tell, which is why, for the second straight year, we’re launching the Owned Growth Stories program. 

Businesses of all sizes have great stories to tell about how they took control of their growth and owned it. And this program is designed to collect and amplify those stories. 

Last year, we awarded a $5,000 grand prize, but this year we’re raising the stakes. The grand-prize winner of the 2020 program will win $25,000! We’ll select five finalists that will be eligible to win the grand prize, plus all finalists will win a free year of Klaviyo (up to $10,000). We’ll select the winner based on the following criteria:


  • Demonstrate a clear and concise growth story
  • Effectively communicate what you’ve accomplished and why you should win
  • Clearly articulate how you’ll use the $25,000 to help your company grow


If you’re chosen as one of the five finalists, you’ll create a two-minute video (coordinated by Klaviyo) in which you’ll tell your story. The public and the internal team at Klaviyo will cast their votes on the videos. 

We’ll determine the $25,000 grand prize winner based on a combination of the total number of votes, the number of views of the video, and the feedback from Klaviyo judges. 

How to enter

Here are the details on how to enter your business into Owned Growth Stories 2020:

  • By July 8th, we’ll select five finalists based on the criteria outlined in the program’s official rules and regulations.
  • Each of the five finalists will win a free year of Klaviyo (up to $10k in value).
  • By August 5th, each of the five finalists will record a two-minute video that will be professionally filmed and produced, coordinated and paid for by Klaviyo (no need to worry about the content just yet, we’ll help you along the way. If you’re selected, we’ll share more details.)
  • On August 7th, the five finalist videos will be posted on the Owned Growth Stories website. At this point, voting will open and all finalists will be encouraged to promote their video to their brand’s followers to get as many votes as possible.
  • On August 27th, we’ll announce the winner!

Every growth story is a story worth sharing. Whether you’ve just launched your business or you’ve been around for years, we want to hear how you’ve owned your brand’s growth.
