The top 5 finalists in each category were announced last week for the Small Business BC Awards. As a (super) small business owner, I love reading about local success stories, new concepts, and supporting BC businesses. I also used Small Business BC‘s services (located at Waterfront Station) when I started my own business 6 years ago.
These finalists will all move onto the final portion of the competition and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on February 27th.

I was very happy to see some of my favourites among the finalists, including Roam Mobility (for Best Concept) and Make It Productions (for Best Online Marketer). If you are travelling to the United States you need to look up Roam Mobility’s packages for roaming talk, text, and data plans — no, this is not a sponsored endorsement!
Tickets are now available for the awards ceremony, which will be hosted by Claire Newell, founder and president of Travel Best Bets. Enjoy drinks, appetizers and networking with BC’s top business owners, industry leaders and government officials as we announce the winners of the 11th Annual Small Business BC Awards.
