Businesses Urged to Apply for Marketplace Governor's Awards
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/22/2015
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation is seeking nominations for the 2015 Marketplace Governor's Awards, which will recognize outstanding Wisconsin businesses owned by minorities, women and service-disabled veterans.
Small and large businesses will be honored in two categories: 'The Outstanding Business Award,' which recognizes established businesses that have demonstrated the capacity to grow over the past five years and have plans for continued expansion in the future; and 'The Rising Star Award,' which honors
businesses established after 2011 that have demonstrated strong growth potential.
Winners will be honored at Marketplace 2015, the Governor's Conference on Minority Business Development, which will be held in October at the Potawatomi Hotel and Conference Center in Milwaukee.
The Marketplace 2015 awards are open to Wisconsin-based companies that have been certified as MBE, WBE or DVB businesses by the state of Wisconsin. Companies that have not yet been certified businesses will be connected with the agencies necessary to receive state certification.
The nomination deadline is July 30. Nomination forms and more details can be found at MarketplaceWisconsin.com.
