Nominate an Outstanding Aurora Business

Thursday, July 12, 2018

The Aurora Business Recognition Awards Program, which began in 2005, celebrates successful businesses that are leaders in the workplace and community. It recognizes not only the economic vitality that businesses of all sizes and types bring to Aurora, but also the influence that businesses have on where people live, work, shop and play.

The selection committee will be looking for proven longevity, significant business growth, the introduction of a unique product or service, exceptional customer service and proven contributions to the greater community.  The City of Aurora annual Business Recognition Awards program will be celebrated at a gathering in December, hosted by the Aurora Business Advisory Board.

To view a list of past award winners and complete a nomination form, visit AuroraGov.org/BusinessAwards. For more information, contact Chad Argentar at (303) 739-7052 or cargenta@auroragov.org.

The Aurora-South Metro Small Business Development Center coordinates the awards program. The city of Aurora’s Business Advisory Board, which serves as the selection committee, was formed in 1990 to advise the Aurora City Council on the economic and business impact of city legislative and regulatory actions.

Nominations are accepted continuously and reviewed after August 31st of each year.  Go here for more information and the application form.
