Commenting on the initiative, Rajeev Bakshi, Managing Director, METRO Cash and Carry India, said that the initiative would underscore the company’s commitment to help small businesses grow and flourish. He added: “The Metro Community Stars Awards 2014 are a platform for us to champion the cause of independent businesses, and salute their entrepreneurial acumen and spirit. This is our way of deepening the relationships of trust and reliability that we have built within the business community, and contributing to their prosperity.”
Independent businesses can participate in the contest with details of their businesses, pictures and videos, if any.

The winner will be declared on the basis of votes for the most aspiring story shared by the entrepreneurs, after which a special jury will decide the final three winners of the title. Top three applications will be selected by a prominent jury and win prizes of Rs 1,00,000, Rs 50,000 and Rs 25,000, respectively. The contest is not limited to Metro Cash & Carry customers.
