The Family Business Association Vancouver Island (FBAVI) is currently receiving nominations for the 2018 Family Business Excellence (FBE) Awards and Young Entrepreneur Award.
These Awards recognize significant achievement made by a Vancouver Island family business and an outstanding young entrepreneur.
The FBE Awards 2018 introduces a new category: Young Entrepreneur. This award will honour an individual under the age of 35 who has proven leadership skills in the family business.
To qualify, a Family Business must be registered in Canada, and have been registered for the past five years. They must be a family owned, private company, or a public company controlled by an individual or family. The company can operate internationally, but the head office must be in Canada. Self-nominations will be accepted. Open to FBAVI members and non-members.
To meet the outstanding Young Entrepreneur requirements, the nominee must be under the age of 35 and have been involved in a Vancouver Island family business for a minimum of three years.
When making a nomination, include as much information as possible. Stating so-and-so is a really nice person is not enough; vaguely stating “Their business is great” is equally uninformative. Tell the judges what makes your nominee nice or great, tell them how they do it and tell them why. Those little details can make a big difference.
Do you know of a fabulous family business or an outstanding young entrepreneur?

The awards will be presented at The Beach House in Cordova Bay, 5109 Cordova Bay Rd, on February 18, 2018.

Since you’re here, we have a small favour to ask.
At 1.7 million page views over the past year, more people than ever are reading SPN. We had hoped advertising local services and events would sustain this service, but that has not come to pass. Advertising revenues are falling; status quo is unsustainable. Readers, please consider a small monthly donation. This can help secure the future of SPN. Business owners: Please consider an ad. More than massive local exposure, you will also be affiliated with an independent business that is 100% local, 99% paperless, and highly valued by the 98%. That’s priceless.
Thank you for your continued readership.
