Nominate a Best business

Small Business BC has opened nominations for the 13th Annual Small Business BC Awards, which will recognize excellence in 10 categories.

Nominations are open until Nov. 30. The objective is to “celebrate the contributions new and existing businesses registered in B.C., with fewer than 50 employees, make to their local communities and the global economy.”

People can nominate their favourite small businesses. Entrepreneurs can also nominate themselves.

Each award winner will receive the Premier’s Prize of $1,500, a one-year All-Access Pass to Small Business BC education and resources, and one-on-one business mentorship opportunities.

The top five finalists from each of the 10 categories will be announced Jan. 29 and will present a ten-minute Dragons’ Den-style pitch to judges to prove themselves B.C.’s best.

Winners will be announced at the Small Business BC Awards Ceremony on Feb. 25.

Details can be found at www.sbbcawards.ca.
