☂️Chris Stephens, CEO of Twirling Umbrellas: "We were really grateful for the experience and it was so valuable comparing ourselves to the other finalists. It helped us put our business into context. We saw what other businesses were doing and it highlighted where we needed to be to match them. I actually think it was a big part of starting the culture we now have at Twirling Umbrellas."
🐱Nathan Chan, General Manager at Catoro Pets: “I think the format of bringing local entrepreneurs and businesses together offers a fantastic way of networking and getting a sense of community with like-minded individuals who may have gone through the same challenges we did. From talking to them you gain a different perspective or a different solution to your shared problem.”
🍴Marissa Bergeron, Founder of eatthedishes.com: “The SBBC awards were an enriching experience for us at Eat the Dishes in many ways; we sharpened our public speaking skills while preparing for our pitch, increased our network of likeminded business connections, booked new events due to our exposure as an award candidate, and finally actually carved out a moment to celebrate our achievements in our first year in business (something often neglected in the small business world)."
🔊Joe Salazar, Operations Manager at GeoScan Subsurface Surveys: “Participating in the Awards gave us a chance to get valuable exposure with the BC small business community while celebrating the achievements of our hard working team. It gave us a zoomed out look at ourselves, and helped us find areas for potential growth.”
🦺James Flawith, Founder of Lil Worker Safety Gear: “I learned a lot about myself and my company along the way. Events like the Small Business BC Awards push entrepreneurs to improve, and even though I didn’t win, just participating really opened my eyes to what’s possible if you work hard and persist.”
