A Contender for Business of the Year and Young Entrepreneur
devEdge Internet Marketing is pleased to announce that we have been nominated and selected as a finalist for 2 2012 WestShore Awards. The awards categories are for Business of the Year (1 Person) and Young Entrepreneur. Congratulations to all the finalists of the WestShore Awards! Yes, even the other finalists competing for our own categories.
A big thank you to our clients and fellow community members who nominated us for these prestigious awards. We are honoured to serve you and to be a part of one of the fastest growing communities in Canada.
I really am proud that my young company, of only 1 year, has managed to become a finalist (twice this year and once last year) for the WestShore Awards. These aren’t the type of awards that you can throw your own name up for consideration. This year alone the WestShore Chamber of Commerce received over 230 nominations from the WestShore community! So to be chosen as a finalist is indeed an honour.
Hopefully I will be writing a winners announcement in a couple weeks!
Update Sept 29, 2012: I’m afraid devEdge Internet Marketing did not win any awards. Of course, we are still super proud to have become a finalist for such highly esteemed categories.
About the 2012 WestShore Awards
The WestShore Awards are conducted by the WestShore Chamber of Commerce. The awards are open to any WestShore Chamber member and/or local WestShore region business (the “WestShore” is a region that consists of several municipalities just outside of Victoria, BC). Nominations for the various awards categories are put forth by the public – not by the businesses themselves. Once nominations are closed, a panel of independent and objective judges review all of the nominations. Awards finalists are selected based on the nominators comments. This same judging panel also declares a winner for each category.
Winners for the 2012 WestShore Awards will be announced (and awarded) on September 28th, 2012 at an awards gala. Tickets are $75. Further details and ticket purchases can be made through the WestShore Chamber of Commerce.
