The 17th Annual Spirit of Small Business Awards are just around the corner!

Join us and Pacific Coast Business Times at this annual awards luncheon as we honor and celebrate the entrepreneurial diversity of the Central Coast of California.

This year’s program is getting a major makeover with a number of new award categories that look back at previous winners and look forward to a new generation of entrepreneurs.

Our new award category lineup includes a “Think Global” award for international connections, a “Never Say Never” award for overcoming adversity, a “Pioneer Spirit” award for innovation, a “Community Spirit” award for engagement, an “All in the Family” award for family business, and a “Look Back” award to recognize a past winner, to join award categories for a “Small Business Advocate” award for successful small business advocacy, a “Green Business” award for innovation in the environment and sustainability, and a “Veteran Business” award for achievement by a veteran-owned business. 

Our awards luncheon reflects an enduring partnership between the Los Angeles District Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration and Pacific Coast Business Times.  We have been long time partners in the Spirit Awards and we appreciate the Pacific Coast Business Time and its team of professionals, as well as the invaluable support of our community and lending partners.  We invite you to join us in Santa Barbara on August 22nd

Seating is limited.  RSVP by August 15th.
