LaboHave you nominated a business to be recognized at the 21st annual Labo Awards? Friday is the deadline, so nominate your favorite businesses, here.

The prestigious Joel Labovitz Entrepreneurial Success Awards celebrate entrepreneurial leadership and successes in the Twin Ports and Minnesota’s Northeast Region by recognizing entrepreneurs who have followed their dreams and taken on inordinate risks to forge ahead meeting the challenges of today’s economic reality.

In its 21st year of celebrating entrepreneurial excellence, the UMD Center for Economic Development has issued the call for nominations. A business may be nominated for an award by a customer, client, employee, vendor or a private citizen who wants to recognize a business owner. Business people and organizations from throughout the region are encouraged to participate in the nomination process by completing the online nomination form (hotlink above).

“Nominate a deserving business. This is an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments and recognize those individuals who have taken risks that have created an economic impact and employment opportunities in our region,” said Elaine Hansen, Director of the UMD Center for Economic Development.

Award recipients will be announced at the 21st annual Joel Labovitz Entrepreneurial Success Awards Luncheon, which is part of a regional celebration of The U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Small Business Week. The luncheon will be April 24 at the DECC.
