#SqTheLove Connects Canada’s Small Business Owners to Share Tips and Advice

KITCHENER-WATERLOO - October 21, 2014 - Square, the company building the most complete register for small businesses, today announced “Square the Love,” a social media contest to help Canada’s small business owners connect with each other and share their most helpful business tips and what drives their success. The contest coincides with Small Business Month as well as Square’s second anniversary in Canada.

Square will award three prizes as part of the contest. First place wins free processing on $10,000 in sales from Square and a $150 Visa gift card. Second place receives free processing on $2,000 in sales from Square and a $100 Visa gift card. Third place wins free processing on $1,000 in sales from Square and a $50 Visa gift card.
