First, congratulations to Gary K. Mart, the Florida SBDC’s 2015 Distinguished Entrepreneur of Southwest Florida.
I think it is important to note, all of our nominees should be celebrated for their success in Southwest Florida. Small business essentially is what keeps our 5-county area employed, revenue generating, and we are all so good at what we do, people keep moving their businesses and families here because they want to join us in our SW Florida paradise, we all call home – I think most people can tell by what we all do so well, we love where we live, work, and of course play.
Congratulations to our finalists!
Congratulations to the 2015 William O. Webb $1,000 Award
To all of our nominees, we would like to recognize and thank you all for participating this year.
Lastly, we would like to close with thanks to our sponsors, guest speaker, & emcee. Our event sponsors, speakers, and other supporters, make this celebration of small business and entrepreneurship possible.
