Submission deadline is Sept. 15 for NH Business Review honors

The awards, which recognize the imagination, industriousness, innovation and achievements of business owners and operators in New Hampshire, will be presented in November at an evening reception at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester.

“The nomination period of our Business Excellence Awards is always an exciting time as we learn about and review the innovative work of both well-established businesses and newer companies just starting on their road to entrepreneurial success,” said Jeff Feingold, editor of NH Business Review. “New Hampshire’s business community is vital to the overall success of the state, and we are proud to honor individuals that strive for a prosperous New Hampshire for the fifteenth year.”

 • Business & Professional Services
