Celebrate Small Business

Small business is the lifeblood of Michigan's economy. Not since the early years of the era of mass production has that statement been more true. Five of the organizations that support and celebrate entrepreneurism in Michigan have banded together to create Michigan Celebrates Small Business, the state's premier awards ceremony for entrepreneurs and small business leaders.

These organizations include:

*The U.S. Small Business Administration - Michigan
*The Small Business Association of Michigan
*The Michigan Economic Development Corporation
*Michigan Small Business & Technology Development Center
*Edward Lowe Foundation

Last year, over 600 leaders in both business and government gathered to honor more than 60 of Michigan's small business leaders. This year's event promises to be even more exciting and the award winners even more successful and deserving.

If you are an entrepreneur, you'll want to be sure to check out the nomination procedures and find out how your firm or perhaps the firm of a colleague might win one of these prestigious awards. Entrepreneur or not, you can still attend the event, support the cause of small business and rub elbows with some of the state's most promising business people, politicians and deal makers.
