For 32 years, Northwest Indiana has recognized the achievements of outstanding entrepreneurs and small business owners. The awards are sponsored by the Northwest Indiana Small Business Development Center (NW-ISBDC) in concert with leading universities and businesses in our region.
Our 2023 nomination season is closed. Thank you for your nominations this year! Beyond our traditional categories of Small Business Person of the Year and Small Business Advocate, we have added Advocate for Youth Entrepreneurship to spotlight community members who are mentoring our next generation of innovators.
