At The American Genius, we pride ourselves in bringing you the non-fluffy stuff: The news that really matters, the insider tips that are actually helpful, and our (often uncensored) opinions about things not worth wasting your time on. Our goal is to inspire action and offer meaningful insight to help YOU – our readers.
This year, we’re choosing to recognize others that inspire us through our 2020 Business Survivors spotlight, and we invite you to apply!
What is it?
Since the pandemic started, the news has heavily featured stories about businesses that have ‘successfully pivoted and made it big’ as well as those that have ‘lost everything and filed for bankruptcy’. But what about the people in between?
The American Genius 2020 Business Survivors aims to highlight the stories of everyday business owners and entrepreneurs who are just trying to straight up survive. We’re shifting away from recognizing influencers to understanding the struggles, the joys, and the unexpected silver linings of keeping a business afloat in 2020.
Who can apply?
Anyone who owns a business in the U.S. can apply! We want to hear your story. Tell us about the good, the bad, and everything in between. And if you’re not a business owner but know of someone that deserves this, encourage them to apply.

It’s important to remember that while there’s not a whole lot we can control as we continue to navigate this strange new normal together… we CAN continue to support one another, talk about our successes, discuss lessons learned, share resources, and just keep on, keepin’ on.
