The public can support exceptional small companies in the area by nominating them for the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce Small Business Awards.
These awards recognize small businesses in four categories: 1-20 employees, 21-50 employees, 51-200 employees and nonprofit.
The Chattanooga Chamber names four finalists in each category for a total of 12. One recipient from each category receives a Small Business Award, announced at the Chamber’s Small Business Awards Luncheon on Feb. 13.
Self-nominations are accepted. Submit nominations here, open until Nov. 1.
Finalist companies receive multiple benefits aside from bragging rights, including:
- Recognition during event: Finalist companies are highlighted during the Small Business Awards Luncheon. More than 1,000 top business leaders, potential customers and investors attend every year.
- Video telling their business story: This video, a value estimated between $2,000 and $5,000, will be shown at the event and finalists may use them for marketing.
- Local media coverage: Chamber’s Business Trend (ChattanoogaTREND.com) magazine features finalists both online and in print.
