Entrepreneur Awards Reception and Resource Showcase

First Entrepreneur Awards Reception and Resource Showcase to connect and support entrepreneurs as they elevate their business

The North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce and its economic development arm, the North Central Massachusetts Development Corporation (NCMDC), announced it will be hosting an inaugural Entrepreneur Awards Reception and Resource Showcase. The event is intended to help connect entrepreneurs and recognize them for their success and community impact.

The Entrepreneur Awards Reception and Resource Showcase will be held on Thursday, March 28, 5 to 7 p.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton, 99 Erdman Way in Leominster, and is open to all Chamber members, NCMDC clients, potential entrepreneurs, and the local business community. Appetizers and refreshments will be provided. The event will also feature a table-top expo with NCMDC clients, as well as resource and banking partners who can assist existing small businesses or those looking to start a business.

In addition to the resource showcase, the event will also feature an awards program to recognize small businesses that have worked with the NCMDC and experienced success in starting or growing their business. Of the awards, recognition will include a business owner who works with underserved communities or populations, a business that provides needed services for the communities, and a business that has shown growth over the past year resulting in quality jobs and increased revenue.

“Our entrepreneurs pursued their dreams, and by doing so, offer new innovation and opportunity for our region that results in overall job and economic growth,” said Roy M. Nascimento, president and CEO, North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce. “We hope this event will provide our entrepreneurs the opportunity to not only connect with key resources to help them elevate their business, but also to network with other entrepreneurs to develop camaraderie as they continue toward successful business growth. It also provides us with the opportunity to recognize their hard work and dedication to our community.”
