Celia Bell Annual Entrepreneur Awards 2017
Start Small. Think Big!
In 2017, we present our first ever Celia Bell SCORE Austin Annual Entrepreneur Awards to three local business owners for their exceptional dedication to starting, growing and nurturing a small business or not-for-profit organization. Planned as an annual event, the awards reflect the values of SCORE to help start and grow small businesses, as well as the creativity, dedication and passion of SCORE Austin mentor Celia Bell, who has helped start and grow many small businesses across greater Austin.
For the past 50 years, through education, mentoring and workshops, SCORE has provided free small business advice, educated entrepreneurs and helped small businesses start, grow, and maintain their businesses.
Winners will be named in the following categories:
Small Business Category – $5,000
Start-Up Business Category – $1,500
Not-for-Profit Category – $1,500
The awards are made possible through a generous grant from Local University (LocalU) – a national series of SEO seminars – which together with Google, gave the SCORE Austin chapter an ongoing grant/scholarship to help grow small businesses in Austin. The awards will be granted at an awards luncheon on Sept. 14 at the Hilton Austin and hosted in collaboration with our partners, including LocalU, SBDC, Admen, FranNet and Frost Bank, Regus and 1st Credit Commercial.
In addition to the money grants, winners will also benefit through the publicity they will receive, which will include a video created for the winners and the runners up in each category.
