Rally Around Small Business

Energize the Transformation! Rally Around Small Business 2021!

For the third year in a row, The Business Journal and Premier Bank are partnering to “Rally Around Small Business.” Small business is the fuel and lifeblood of our local economy and this year our focus is to “Energize the Transformation.”

2020 was an unprecedented year of transformation as we all adjusted to life during the pandemic. Many small businesses closed, but many more used the opportunity to transform. In the spirit of building a strong and thriving business community, we want all businesses to share with our audience what they did to “energize the transformation.” We need to share tips and best practices with each other – to help us all energize our business.

There is pent up demand – and we need to help small-business owners capture all of the opportunities.

Sponsor our Campaign!

We’re seeking additional sponsorship partners in the effort to support small businesses. We’re all part of the “circuit of success” and we invite you to lean in to deliver community investment and achieve marketing impact!

Is Business Back to Normal?

After a year of restrictions, guidelines, masks and overall uncertainty, there is some pent up energy among small businesses and their customers to get back to normal. We want to know what “normal” looks like for your company and how you Rally Around Small Business to support the local business community.
