ANN ARBOR — GPX Software LLC, an Accelerate Michigan Innovation Business Plan Competition semi-finalist, is looking for a total of 200 out of 250 needed votes by June 30 to qualify for a Chase and LivingSocial-sponsored $250,000 grant.
This grant will help GPX realize its goal of helping other small businesses overcome their financial planning struggles.
As of today, the company has received 72 votes.
The Ann Arbor-based GPX Software was founded in 2009 by Richard Goldstein, a veteran technology entrepreneur, and Matthew Pickus, an expert in new business ventures.
The company’s goal is to reduce the widespread financial planning problems of the small business market. On May 24, GPX launched Xambrosius Business Intelligence Tools, which provides pre-programmed, menu driven, cloud based financial planning and analytics to help reduce material information errors, hardware/software costs and the time to deliver a pro-forma by 80 percent.
Goldstein called Xambrosius “BI for the Little Guy.” He said the $250,000 grant “will rev-up our marketing programs and allow GPX Software to create targeted market buzz to the accountants, consultants and bankers that service the financial planning and analytics needs, required for any small businesses to be successful.”
Chase and LivingSocial’s “Mission: Small Business” grant program will award up to $30 million to small business owners nationwide. The program was developed to provide small businesses with resources needed to grow and drive their business. Learn more at www.missionsmallbusiness.com
