What was the SMB Awards 2021 Journey?

Understanding The Auditing Process

A panel of external experts evaluated the nominations based on various factors such as eligibility criteria, business model, blueprints, growth paradigm, innovation strategies and achievement intentions to determine the most promising participants.

What did the nominees need to apply to SMB Awards 2021?

All participating businesses were required to share a complete consolidation of their essential business information. The first and most critical eligibility factor was for their business to be more than 3 years old.
