Small businesses in the City of Melbourne are invited to apply for the 2015 Business 3000+ Awards which recognise and celebrate their endeavours and achievements.
Nominations are open now, and close on August 31.
Some 47 Melbourne-based businesses have won the awards in the past 11 years, and this has led to increased exposure of their businesses and further recognition from Melbourne’s business community. 43 of these recipients have grown their businesses since winning their awards.
Melbourne businesses are eligible for a number of awards and recognitions, including the Melbourne Awards, the Lord Mayor’s Commendations and the Business 3000+ Awards.
The Business 3000+ Awards focus on services-based small businesses including, but not limited to, finance, legal and IT.
Awards organiser John Stock says that the beauty of these awards is “the small business stories they uncover in our city”.
Nominations are sought from small businesses located within the City of Melbourne that contribute to the commercial success and unique, vibrant fabric of the city.
Businesses that operate their head office, an office, branch, shop or outlet within the City of Melbourne municipal boundaries, and have no more than 30 full-time employees are eligible to enter.
There are five categories in which businesses can self-nominate, or if you know a small business that fits the bill, you can nominate them via the website – www.b3000.org.au
Past awards winners have included Ausmed Education, Mork Chocolate, Gomo Foundation, GreenSync, Polaris Communications, Starnet Systems, Enspire Australia, KeepCup, Rooftop Cinema, STREAT and Melbourne City Rooftop Honey.
