In Halifax, we rarely take the time to celebrate the good. Let’s face it – we’re generally either too busy with the day-to-day or anticipating the worst. The local business community is not focused on celebration – it doesn’t have the time. At the Halifax Chamber of Commerce, we want to promote entrepreneurship, a key factor under “Create a Positive Business Environment” in our strategic plan. One of the loudest ways we do this is through our annual Halifax Business Awards. Not only is it the Chamber’s most prestigious event, but also it’s the most involved one – with 30 finalist companies and 6 sponsors, the Halifax Business Awards has a wide reach.
Interested in what it’s like to be a finalist? Here’s what you need to know:
