Small Business is a Big Deal

Apr 24, 2012 | Business & Economy, Business-Friendly Environment

Tomorrow the Chamber is hosting a sold-out Small Business of the Year Awards Luncheon. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate small business in general and to honor some worthy companies in particular. I wrote about the importance of small business in a column in the Coloradoan last weekend, which you can read here.

Out of dozens of companies, the six finalists are Alphagraphics, Brinkman Partners, MazTech & All-Tech Automotive, Palmer Flowers, Shaw & Associates, and The Cupboard.

Congratulations and thank you for all you do for our community!

Special thanks to our sponsors.
