The Loudoun Chamber has announced the 28 finalists for the 26th Annual Loudoun Small Business Awards. These finalists are competing for top honors in six industry categories, as well as for the title of Loudoun’s Entrepreneur of the Year and The Small Business of the Year.
The 26th Annual Loudoun Small Business Awards ceremony will be held on Friday, November 13, 2020. To ensure maximum safety for the award finalists and other guests, the Small Business Awards will be held as a hybrid in-person and virtual event.
The ceremony will take place at The National Conference Center, with attendees capped at 200 and strict social distancing and facial covering rules enforced. It also will be streamed online on the Chamber’s Facebook Page.
“Loudoun’s small business community has endured tremendous sacrifices and made significant contributions to rally our community’s response throughout the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The businesses and entrepreneurs we honor on November 13th are representative of the grit, ingenuity and commitment to excellence our small business community always demonstrates, in good times and bad,” said Chamber President Tony Howard.
Once again, this year’s finalists were chosen by several blue-ribbon committees of Loudoun’s top business leaders and industry experts, who met virtually to carefully review nearly 100 applications.
