To celebrate the importance and the accomplishments of small businesses throughout King County, Executive Dow Constantine is hosting the first annual King County Executive’s Small Business Awards Program on October 12, 2011. Awards will be presented in seven categories recognizing the performance of small businesses in King County. For the purpose of this event, we are defining a small business as having 50 employees or less and having been in business for at least 3 years.
Three selected finalists for each category will be invited to attend the event during which we will announce the winners and present the awards. The general public and business partners are welcome and encouraged to attend the award ceremony. Visit the enterpriseSeattle website to register and reserve your spot at the awards event.
