Small Business Celebration Nominations

Each year, the KC Chamber holds what has become the largest celebration of small business in the nation. Help us kick off our 2019 Small Business Celebration by nominating an outstanding small business, for the Small Business of the Year.

The year’s Top 10 Small Businesses will be named in April of 2019; one of those 10 is presented the Mr. K Award as the Small Business of the Year at a May celebration finale. The Mr. K Award is named after famed Kansas City entrepreneur Ewing Kauffman. The deadline for nominations is December 1.

Applications for all Small Business Awards will be available online, December 1, as well.

If you are nominating a large number of companies you may find it easier to use this spreadsheet, and email it to
