First, the definition of a Small Business Influencer;
A small business influencer is a person, company or other organization that has made a meaningful and lasting impact on the North American small business market.
Do you know a person, company, or other organization that has made a major impact in the small business market?
If so, here's your chance to make sure that they receive recognition!
It's now in Phase I, and it's where you nominate influencers. In Phases 2 and 3, you and an all-star judging panel will vote for the top 100. It all culminates with honoring the Top 100 Small Business Influencers in mid-August 2011, with an awards dinner to follow on September 13, 2011.
The list of nominees is already quite impressive, and I'm very excited to be involved in this small business contest. (I'm one of the judges.)
