Dream Big Awards

6:30 PM - 7:15 PM (EDT)

Across cities, states, and communities of all sizes, small businesses are the backbone the U.S. economy.  You serve clients and customers in all sectors and in every corner of the economy. In the face of uncertainty, you create jobs and build opportunities.  Every day, you prove that small businesses have a big impact.  Join us for a celebration of some of this year’s most impressive businesses.  During a reception, dinner, and awards gala, we’ll honor the 2022 of our Dream Big Awards program.  We invite you to help us unveil the winners in the following categories:  

  • Community Support and Leadership Award 

  • Emerging Business Award 

  • Green and Sustainable Business Achievement Award  

  • Minority-Owned Small Business Achievement Award, presented by MetLife

  • Veteran-Owned Small Business Achievement Award 

  • Women-Owned Small Business Achievement Award 

  • Young Entrepreneur Achievement Award 

  • LGBTQ-Owned Business Achievement Award 

  • Small Business of the Year Award 

We’ll also honor our finalists and winners from the past two years, when we weren’t able to convene in person.  In addition to recognition during our ceremony, we’ll set aside time for “cohort photos” with finalists and winners from 2020 and 2021.  You won’t want to miss this event! We are excited to host our finalists in-person again this year, and we will stream the event live for our nationwide audience to tune in live.
