September 23, 2014

Nominations will be open Mon., Sept. 29, for the 2015 Michigan Celebrates Small Business awards program, a prestigious annual competition that recognizes successful growing businesses and their supporters. The winners will be honored at the 11th annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business event on May 7, 2015. Last year, nearly 1,000 people attended the state’s premier awards program to honor the awardees. Nominations for these awards can be made through www.michigancelebrates.biz

“Michigan Celebrates Small Business is the premier activity for recognizing the companies that are creating an expansive impact in our state,” says Miche Suboski, managing director of MiQuest. “Now is the time for small business advocates to make nominations. We are hoping to find those companies both well hidden and those in plain sight that exemplify innovation and growth in Michigan.”

Award categories for business owners include the Main Street USA Award, Government Contracting Award, Innovation Award and various SBA Awards (categories to be announced.)

The Michigan 50 Companies to Watch will also be honored at the awards dinner. The 50 Companies to Watch Awards are designed to discover and honor the second-stage companies that make an economic impact in their communities and in the state. Michigan Celebrates is seeking companies known for their marketplace performance, innovation, and vision for growth. Nominations can come from service providers (such as attorneys, bankers, accountants, public relations representatives, economic development professionals, etc.) or companies may apply directly as well.

Michigan Celebrates Small Business is a partnership of MiQuest (managing partner), the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, the Edward Lowe Foundation, Small Business Association of Michigan, the Michigan Small Business and Development Center and the Michigan Business Network.
