Birmingham’s own MotionMobs, a mobile-first custom software development firm, on Tuesday was named a Woman-Owned Business Achievement Award Finalist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s 2018 Dream Big Small Business of the Year Awards.
Every year, the awards program honors the achievements of small businesses and honors their contributions to America’s economic growth. MotionMobs is one of 21 finalists set to be honored during the Small Business Summit in Washington, D.C. on October 3.
“Small businesses are a vital sector of our economy. Every day small business owners wake up, work hard, and give their all. When small businesses thrive, our communities thrive, and that’s good for everyone,” said Tom Sullivan, U.S. Chamber vice president of small business policy. “The U.S. Chamber is proud to honor small businesses across the country who embody the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship and significantly contribute to our country’s growth and prosperity.”
The Dream Big Awards program includes Business Achievement Awards to recognize excellence in six categories and reflect the leading businesses in each of the following areas: emerging, green/sustainable, minority-owned, veteran-owned, woman-owned, and young entrepreneur businesses.
Additionally, each finalist is entered in to an online ballot for our Community Excellence Award that recognizes a small business that has demonstrated an exemplary level of leadership and community engagement to positively impact the quality of life in its community.
Online voting, running now through Friday, September 7 at 11:59 p.m. ET, will allow the people who know a company best — its customers, employees, and neighbors — to cast a vote for their favorite business.
MotionMobs is asking for Alabama’s support.
