The Forbes Business Chamber Boscars committee has added two new categories to keep with the alignment forged with the NSW Business Chamber last year.
The first is Excellence in Social Enterprise, which recognises businesses that have been established to further a social purpose in a financially sustainable way. Businesses have to be revenue generating and can be not for profit and for profit. This will enable not for profit organisations to be involved.
The other new category is Start Up Superstar. This award recognises a business that has been operating for less than two years that delivers a product/service/idea/ invention with credible potential, have a solid chance of market success, and strongly displays entrepreneurial spirit.
Categories that remain the same are: Excellence in Innovation, Excellence in Small Business (under 20 employees), Excellence in Business (employing more than 20 em- ployees), Employer of Choice, Apprentice or Trainee of the Year, Employee of the Year, Young Entrepreneur (Age 18-35), Business Leader of the Year and Business of the Year.
The People’s Choice, Tradie of the Year and Most Popular Business will also remain. For more information, contact Fiona Ferguson on 0407 380 936 or Cheryl Newsom
