Pair in the running for Small Business BC Awards

Two Abbotsford businesses have been named as top-five finalists in this year’s Small Business BC Awards.

eVision Media – a digital marketing agency – has been named in the category of Best Company, while Amiante Environmental Consulting is a finalist for Best Immigrant Entrepreneur.

The competition began in the fall, with more than 600 small businesses being nominated in eight categories.

The top-five finalists are now requested to present a 10-minute pitch in February to a judging panel at the Small Business BC office in Vancouver.

Pitches will be followed by a short question-and-answer session from the judging panel.

The winners will be announced at an awards gala on Feb. 21 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

They will receive the Premier’s Prize of $1,500 cash and a one-year all-access pass to Small BC education and experts.
