The Brain Gain Excellence Awards recognize the region’s top workforce development initiatives and fresh new business ideas – the entrepreneurial spirit. We’ll be honoring businesses, community organizations or individuals in the two following categories:

  1. Workforce Development
    To be awarded to a business or community organization that has impacted job creation, training and upskilling, and/or employee recruitment in a unique and positive way.
  2. Entrepreneurism
    To be awarded to an individual or ownership group that leveraged local resources to kickstart a fresh idea into a promising business.

Deadline for nominations is Sept. 26. Self-nominations are also accepted.

Winners will be featured in our November and Mid-November editorial content.

One winner in each category will receive a Business Journal prize pack consisting of an advertising package in The Business Journal and a custom, 60-second brand video produced by The Business Journal content studio.
