Over the last 11 years, the Small Business BC Awards have expanded from a simple business planning contest to a large-scale provincial awards contest and ceremony that has built a reputation of excellence and prestige amongst the small business community. But, all of this would not have been possible without the outstanding support of our sponsors, which allows us to promote the entrepreneurial excellence in BC.
However, sponsoring the awards is not just a one-way street. The Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) has been the Title Sponsor for the awards for the last five years. Their contribution is part of their corporate social responsibility pledge, to give back to the community which provides business for their members, but as Bill Adams, Vice President Western & Pacific Region describes, “I leave here feeling much more invigorated, personally, than I do from most events that I do.” He tells us that when you get into an environment like the Small Business BC Awards, where you are surrounded by entrepreneurs who are taking risks every day to grow the economy of our province, you can’t help but come away enthused. Which is why he promises, “We’ll be back!”
