K40 Electronics Aims for Next Round of Intuit Small Business Big Game Challenge

(Elgin, Illinois) K40 Electronics, a maker of high-end automotive radar detector and laser jamming systems sold exclusively through K40's network of 2,500 independent electronics dealers and luxury auto dealerships, has moved onto to Round Two of Intuit Corporation's Small Business Big Game contest.

Intuit will award the winning small business a professionally-produced, 30 second television commercial to be broadcast during the Super Bowl on February 2, 2014.

K40 is a small business that helps other small businesses succeed.

"We believe in the little guy," said Peggy Finley, K40 President. "We respect our dealers because they are the very best at what they do, installing our products and making sure our radar systems work flawlessly for their customers. That's why we've never sold through big box retailers or direct-to-consumers online."

As part of the contest, K40 employees wrote the lyrics and performed in a music video. (It's a "must-see!") Each company's entry in the contest will be scored based on a number of factors, including votes by the public.

Round Two of the contest closes October 13.

"We're hoping to move on to the next round," Finley said. "Our team is proud to be a small business making a difference not only for other small businesses, but also for our community."

K40 returns 2/3 of all profit to its employees and to the local Boys & Girls Club.
