The Business of Good


Can I apply in multiple categories?

Yes. If your company becomes a finalist in a category, we will reach out and ask to speak with the best person to talk about the category in question.

Okay, I’ve submitted. Now what?

You should get an automatic reply informing you where to send any additional queries you have. Other than that, we will only contact finalists in each category.

When will finalists be notified by?

Finalists will know by mid-December.

How will the winners/finalists be decided?

An independent panel of judges will help us pick the deserving winners and finalists.

Will there be an event?

Yes. It will take place near the end of February. More information about that will come available as the date draws closer.
