There’s still time to register for The 2nd Annual Small Business Awards which honors outstanding Montgomery County small businesses for their contributions to the local economy and their communities.

From start-ups to established companies, small businesses reflect the diversity of Montgomery County and offer a broad variety of products and services.

This year's keynote speaker is Karen Zuckerman, Chief Creative Director and President of HZDG, the agency she launched from her basement in the late 1980s. More than 20 years later, the company has more than 100 employees and offices in Rockville and New York. The agency’s client list includes the Washington Redskins, Bozzuto and Brooks Brothers.

Come hear Ms. Zuckerman’s insights into lessons learned as she grew her business and why Montgomery County has been a great place to grow.

2013 Winner Testimonial

Winning this award has been tremendous for us.  We have used this award to differentiate ourselves from the competition and explain to our clients the time and effort we spend in recruiting and developing the very best employees.  Our business is one built on trust and what better way to showcase that than the recognition of the people within the organization.  I feel that all of the hard work and resources spent developing our employees has been validated.  Thank you for creating a venue where small businesses can be recognized for their contributions.
