If you’re a small business owner hoping to take your business to the next level, America’s Top Small Business is the perfect opportunity for you.

Here are the top 3 reasons to apply for our awards program today (or over the long weekend!):

1) Get rewarded for your hard work and dedication:

We’re recognizing top businesses in seven regions across the U.S. — so no matter what corner of the country you call home, you’ll have a chance to be recognized! One grand prize winner will receive our Small Business of the Year Award and a cash prize of $25K.

2) Connect with like-minded individuals:

Regional finalists will join us in Washington, D.C. this fall for an in-person event and celebration. You’ll have the chance to network with other small business owners and get insights from our team of business experts.

3) Elevate your brand:

Highlight your business’ accomplishments and share your story with a wider audience! Regional finalists will receive an article on CO—, a free U.S. Chamber of Commerce membership, as well as a digital toolkit to help spread the word about their ATSB status with customers, fans, and social followers.
