“To meet the challenges ahead of us, we must recognize how important inclusion, equity, and diversity are to a strong economy,” Governor Evers said. “These awards showcase the important contributions that minority-owned, women-owned, and service-disabled veteran-owned businesses make to our communities every day and how they are an important part of building an economy that works for all of us.”
The MARKETPLACE Outstanding Business Awards recognize Wisconsin businesses that show overall business excellence in sales growth, product innovation, employment and management. Those awards have two categories, one for businesses with more than 25 employees and one for small businesses with 25 or fewer employees. The Rising Star Awards recognizes the achievements of businesses operating less than five years that have demonstrated strong growth potential.
All winners are Wisconsin-based companies certified as being minority-owned (MBE), woman-owned (WBE) or service-disabled veteran (SDVB) business enterprises.
