Geri Stengel, founder of Ventureneer.com, is recognized as Top 100 Champion in the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards. She is being recognized for her support and encouragement of entrepreneurs and small business owners.
New York (I-Newswire) August 18, 2012 - Geri Stengel, founder of Ventureneer.com, has been named a Top 100 Champion in the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards.
The Small Business Influencer Awards honor those who are influential to small businesses in North America, through the products, services, knowledge, information or support they provide to the small business market.
The Awards are designed to recognize the unsung heroes of small businesses - those who support and encourage entrepreneurs and small business owners, and help them achieve success and stay successful. The Champions are chosen based on a combination of voting by the small business community and a panel of judges steeped in the small business market, who considered the contributions of the nominees over the past year toward:
*advocating on behalf of small businesses,
*providing products or services that address the unique challenges faced by small businesses,
*revolutionizing how small businesses do business or how they solve business challenges,
*helping small businesses grow,
*or otherwise impacting small businesses in a significant way.
Says Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends and one of the co-founders of the Awards, "Influencers are those who play crucial roles in the small business ecosystem, but who often are in the background. The Top 100 Champions have distinguished themselves in some way. We're delighted to see the wide range of Champions and Honorable Mentions this year - including non-profits, academia, journalists who've spent decades covering small business issues, corporate leaders whose names may not be widely recognized but who impact small businesses by influencing the offerings within their companies , vendors large and small that support small businesses, analysts who aid our understanding of this market, and entrepreneurs who have a strong voice among their small business peers."
Awards co-founder Ramon Ray of SmallBizTechnology.com notes, "Being recognized by the community as a Top 100 Champion also reinforces with employees that their dedication and hard work has paid off. The Awards are intended to provide that added boost in motivation and morale that can make a big difference in results. We're also delighted at the Honorable Mentions, who definitely bear watching over the coming year!"
BlackBerry is the title sponsor of the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards. Other sponsors who leant their support include Infusionsoft, Vocus, GetResponse and Sage.
