B & R Laundry Soap has been nominated in the Premier’s People’s Choice category, while Connect Now Business Network has been named in Premier’s People’s Choice and Best Community Impact.

Frost Nursery has been nominated for Best Company and Best Online Marketer. Nominations are being accepted until Nov. 30 in 10 categories. The top 10 finalists will be selected in each category and they will be invited to submit an extended application.

The top five will then face a Dragons’ Den-style panel of judges to pitch why they should be named the best in B.C.

Winners will receive the Premier’s Prize of $1,500, a one-year pass to Small Business BC education and resources, and one-on-one business mentorship opportunities.
