Join forces with U.S. Bank and Visa to reimagine how small businesses operate.

Small business owners today must have the proper tools on hand in order 

to serve their customers…or risk losing precious sales!

Whether running a restaurant, retail shop or construction company – how might 

U.S. Bank reimagine the day-to-day workings of small businesses?

Consider the following:

Staffing & Suppliers

Inventory Management


Cost of Goods

Using U.S. Bank, Elavon and Visa APIs, along with other third party APIs, build an innovative solution to help small business owners better manage their inventory procurement and management process– staying on top of quantity, cost and any incentives that may benefit their business. Use your creativity, but remember, “simplicity is king” to a time-crunched small business owner. 

Bring your brain and your laptop, we'll take care of everything else!
