British Columbians nominated 535 small businesses from the beginning of October until the end of November. Previously, two businesses based in the North Peace, and the Northern Rockies, were nominated and up for placement in the top 10 ranking of their respective categories, as well.
These top 10 Semi-Finalists will have to complete an award application that will be used to determine the Top 5 Finalists for each of the categories. The finalists will be announced on Jan. 29, 2016.
From here, the Top 5 are chosen to present a business pitch to the judges, à la Dragon’s Den.
The winners of each category will be announced at the Small Business BC Awards Ceremony on Feb. 25, 2016 at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver.
The winners will be offered a one-year all-access pass to education, resources, and mentorships from experts in business.
