Deadline is August 14th
The Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship (IECE) in the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration at Cal State San Bernardino is seeking nominations for the 2023 Spirit of the Entrepreneur Awards (the nomination period ends on August 14, 2023). Now in its 21st year, the Spirit Awards recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of the Inland Empire’s top entrepreneurial business leaders.
Nominees are evaluated based on their innovation, leadership, performance, character, and entrepreneurial mindset. The nominee must also be an owner(s) and/or active key manager(s) of the firm and be primarily responsible for the overall performance of the company. Self-nominations are highly encouraged.
“We have many successful entrepreneurs in the region, and our students and community leaders need to know who they are,” said Mike Stull, “I encourage the business community to nominate an entrepreneur so we can celebrate and honor their achievements.”
Referred to as “The Oscars of Business” by top professionals, the Spirit Awards is a black-tie gala attended by nearly 1,000 people each year. The event features red carpet coverage, cocktail and VIP networking receptions, awards presentations, and 3-course dining, highly anticipated, unveiled entertainment and an exclusive after party. This year’s event will occur on the evening of November 15, 2023, at the Riverside Convention Center. Learn more about the Spirit of the Entrepreneur at SpiritAwardsIE.com
