Small Business Big Story? Help us identify small businesses of notable achievement.

If you know a compelling story about a Minnesota company with fewer than 500 employees, we want to know about it. It can be a client of yours, a company run by a friend or even your own company. Whether it be about a successful turnaround, a rapid early growth, an unusual product innovation, a notable longevity, or the overcoming of an unusual challenge, tell us about it.

Awards will be given to 8-10 small companies. Notable achievements and honorees will be featured in the December issue of Twin Cities Business magazine and celebrated at an awards dinner in January.
