Nominations and voting end September 9, so get started!
The Small Business Influencer 2013 Awards honor companies, organizations, vendors, apps and people who have made a significant impact on the North American small business market.
Produced by Small Business Trends and Small Biz Technology, the three-phase process starts with a nomination followed by voting by you and an all-star judging panel. The Top 100 Small Business Influencers are announced in mid-September, with an Awards Gala in New York City in October 2013.
For instance, Leaders, Corporations, Journalists, News Outlets, Apps or Experts that provide widely used products or influence by being a thought leader, or provide information or services to significant numbers of small businesses can be honored.
Nominate as many people, apps and/or organizations as you wish. All nominations are subject to administrative review, and may be edited for completeness, proper categories, accuracy, grammar and typographical errors. Voting takes place concurrently; anyone may vote, one vote per nominee per day. It may take up to 48 hours for nominations to be appear on the site. Nominations and voting close September 9, 2013 at 11:59 pm Los Angeles time.
Once the community has voted, the all-star small-business judging panel will cast their votes. The community vote counts for 40% and the Judges’ vote counts for 60%.
