Small businesses are the foundation of a prosperous community, and Emergination is proud to be a part of the judging and mentoring panel for this year’s Stirling Small Business Awards. If you are a small business owner, consider nominating your business for an award. It is a great opportunity to gain recognition for your hard work and the contribution your business has made to the Stirling community and the local economy.

The Stirling Small Business Awards 2019 nominations are now open. Award winners will benefit from greater exposure and awareness for their brand. All nominees receive a complimentary 1 hour mentoring session with a member of the judging panel. This is an excellent opportunity to enhance your application, in addition to receiving advice on growing your business and overcoming challenges. As a firm supporter of small businesses, I encourage you to nominate.

There are 9 award categories including:

• Fledgling Business (for business within 12 to 2 years of trading)
• Social Impact Driver
• Innovation Seeker
• Community Hero
• The Quiet Achiever
• Agile Business
• Digital Pioneer
• SBA Member Business 2019 (for SBA members only)
• and the coveted Stirling Business of the Year 2019 award

The prize for the Stirling Business of the Year will receive special coverage in the Stirling Times and access to the Business Foundation’s Growth Program, worth over $12,500. This means invaluable exposure for your business, and a chance to develop new skills and receive mentoring to take your business to the next level.
