Aloysius Butler & Clark Launches “Lightning in a Bottle” Competition


Philadelphia, PA — Aloysius Butler & Clark, a full-service marketing communications firm, wants to identify the next great business idea originating from a Philadelphia-based company. The agency’s “Lightning in a Bottle” competition seeks entries from companies located within the city limits that have a game-changing product or service ready to go to market.

Entries will be accepted from April 14 to May 19 online at www.LightningInABottleAward.com. A blue-ribbon panel of judges representing business, academia, and government will evaluate the submissions. In addition, the public can vote for their favorite entrants via the website.

Ten finalists will be chosen and asked to make in-person presentations to the judging panel. In conjunction with other strategic partners, Aloysius Butler & Clark will award the winner a year of creative marketing services free of charge at an announcement party on June 19.
