Voters picked Denver-based SquirrelBox this month as the winner of $20,000 as part of FirstBank’s “90 Seconds to Success” business video contest.

SquirrelBox specializes in picking up and storing items in the Denver area. The company plans to use the winnings to staff vendor tables at local farmer’s markets and beer festivals, upgrade its pick-up vans and buy a system to better manage inventory.

SquirrelBox beat out a dog performance and aquatics center, a sustainable screen printing company, craft brewery and other businesses to win the money. The winning video can be viewed here.
