Lenovo's Evolve Small Nomination Program

Small businesses are the heart of the Carolinas. For years, they have been pillars of our communities. That's why Lenovo and the Carolina Panthers are partnering together to give back to those integral small businesses in the region on the heels of one of the most challenging times in our history.

What is this program?

The Carolina Panthers and Lenovo are partnering to further support Lenovo's Evolve Small program by awarding 10 small businesses in the Carolinas with $5,000 each worth of technology upgrades and consultation services and provide one small business with a $100,000 advertising sponsorship with the Panthers during the upcoming NFL season.

In August, the Carolina Panthers will invite the 10 finalists to be celebrated and recognized during the Panthers' preseason home game on Aug. 27 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The winner of the $100,000 sponsorship package will be recognized with an on-field ceremony and presentation.

Why should Panthers fans nominate small businesses?

Fans are encouraged to thank, champion and nominate their favorite small business to earn the sponsorship package from the Carolina Panthers.

Fans who successfully nominate a finalist will receive:

  • Game Day VIP package including game tickets, parking and a merchandise credit at the team store

What do the small business finalists win?

The small business finalists receive

  • Two (2) tickets to join all finalists and a Panthers Legend in a suite at the Panthers vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers preseason game on Aug. 27
