This Year’s BGA event will be live and in-person!

The Vancouver Business Journal is excited to announce the return of our in-person Business Growth Awards event! After the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we were forced to cancel the BGA event that year and held a virtual event in 2021. We are so excited to be able to recognize the exceptional growing businesses in Southwest Washington with a live and in-person event this year.

After many businesses suffered losses in 2020, we saw more and more businesses grow, expand and become increasingly profitable in 2021. We can’t wait to recognize all those amazing businesses this year!

The Vancouver Business Journal’s annual Business Growth Awards program recognizes start-ups and growing businesses in Southwest Washington. Join us in celebrating and encouraging business growth in our region.The Awards are open to businesses located in Clark, Cowlitz and Skamania counties.

Since its inception in 2005, hundreds of businesses — including local branches of national corporations, locally headquartered international companies, publicly traded regional companies, as well as single-location, privately held retailers — have been acknowledged.

Fastest growing businesses are recognized in three categories: in business 1 to 5 years, 6 to 10 years and more than 10 years. Additionally, we recognize a start-up business, innovator of the year and a nonprofit organization. All entries are confidentially reviewed by a panel of experts. Awards are based on fiscal year 2021.
