I am so honored and excited to have been nominated for North Alabama's Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 Awards!
The Entrepreneur Awards honor the skill, courage and determination it takes for entrepreneurs to create a business out of an idea. It not only celebrates entrepreneurs, but highlights their importance to our region’s economy. There are several categories that will be awarded and the judging will be from a panel of independent entrepreneurs, successful business leaders, investors, and community advocates. Applications are judged on merit only derived from the information submitted in the application spanning company overview, strategic direction, future growth, and community involvement. No reference to external considerations will be made. All information will be kept confidential and winners will be announced at the Entrepreneurial Awards on March 3, 2017.
