Saint Paul Business Awards
Saint Paul Business Award
Business is booming in Saint Paul – and our business community is one of our city’s most valuable resources. From small businesses to major employers and new start-ups to generations-old family firms, Saint Paul companies provide jobs and services to residents, support for our nonprofit institutions, and a solid foundation for our city’s growth and prosperity. To recognize the outstanding businesses that call Saint Paul home, the City of Saint Paul launched the Saint Paul Business Awards Program in 2017.
The Saint Paul Business Awards Program recognizes local businesses that provide critical services, contribute to our community, invest in their employees and are committed to our values of equity and diversity. Starting January 6, 2020, you many nominate your favorite business. Also, if you are a businessowner, you may self-nominate and be sure to select 'Business nominating themselves' in the Submitter Type field. The closing date for nominating is Friday, February 28, 2020.
