Do you know a small business that is second to none? Recognize their accomplishment by nominating them for the Hampton Roads Chamber’s Small Business of the Year Awards. Businesses do not have to be Chamber members to be eligible. Nominations are due no later than Friday, February 25, 2011 at 5 p.m., and there is no limit to how many businesses you can nominate. Self nominations are welcome.
In addition, the award for Small Business Leadership will be presented to an individual demonstrating leadership, impact on workplace culture, community service and involvement, professional achievement, and perseverance.
The Chamber is also receiving nominations for the “Top 10 to Watch.” Businesses that will be considered must be a South Hampton Roads for-profit emerging business with fewer than 99 employees, in business for six years or less as of January 1, 2011, but more than one year, or should have introduced a new product or entered a new market in the last five years.
