2016 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Crowns of Enterprise Awards


RSVP Online

The Crowns of Enterprise Awards began as a think tank between like-minded small business advocates within the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County in May of 2012.  We are now embarking upon our fifth year of recognizing and honoring small businesses that demonstrate exemplary leadership and sound business strategies.  As a collective effort, we strive to acknowledge and display the hard work and resilient efforts of our local small businesses; ultimately, illustrating the positive footprint and economic impact they have on our community.
The 2016 Crowns of Enterprise award ceremony will be held on

Thursday, May 12, 2016 from 6pm – 8pm

The Palmer Building

2601 East 7th Street, Charlotte, NC


During this event we will award one outstanding business in each of the following categories:

Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) of the Year

Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) of the Year

Small Business Enterprise (SBE) of the Year

Prime Contractor of the Year

Diversity Advocate

Each award winner will receive a 2016 Crowns of Enterprise Award, marketing publicity on the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and Charlotte Business Resources websites and community visibility through numerous social media vehicles.
In efforts of embracing a vision of partnership and collaboration, the Crowns of Enterprise Awards Ceremony not only strives to honor small businesses but to also cultivate an environment that nurtures networking amongst businesses, officials, and government agencies.
We encourage you to attend this remarkable event and join us in celebrating local small businesses that make a huge impact of growth and engagement in our economy and community.
