Every year we strive to increase the impact of the SBBC Awards, so we can better support and celebrate BC small business owners. This year, we’re pleased to add two new award categories and significantly increased the prizing with the support of our sponsors.
“Our small business community is driven by hard working committed individuals from diverse backgrounds who understand both the value of community and the opportunity to live and work in our wonderful province. That’s why we felt it important to add the categories Best Emerging Entrepreneur Award and Best Immigrant Entrepreneur Award to the contest,” says George Hunter, CEO at Small Business BC.
