The Northwest ISBDC is carrying on the tradition of celebrating small business owners and their tenacious spirit by continuing its Entrepreneurial Excellence (E-Day) Awards.

The nomination process is now open for the 29th anniversary event, which highlights entrepreneurs and advocates that are making a difference in the region’s business community.

“With COVID-19 causing so many challenges, we felt it was important to keep our E-Day tradition going strong,” said NW-ISBDC Regional Director Lorri Feldt. “Now, more than ever, our entrepreneurial community needs to know how much we support them and how vital they are to our region’s growth and prosperity.”

Nomination packets are being accepted through Thursday, Sept. 3, and are available by visiting www.edayleaders.com or by calling the Northwest ISBDC office at 219-644-3513.

Nominations are being invited in the following categories: small businessperson of the year, entrepreneurial success, small business exporter, young entrepreneur, minority-owned small businessperson, family-owned business, emerging small business and small business advocate.

Entrepreneurs with a strong three-year track record in the seven-county Northwest Indiana Small Business Development Center area of Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Jasper, Starke, Pulaski and Newton counties are eligible. The nomination process is open to the public.

Winners will be celebrated on Thursday, Nov. 12. The format of the event will be determined closer to the date in order to ensure the safety of the honorees and the NW-ISBDC staff.
