*In Person Event*
Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present its inaugural Greater Rochester Chamber MWBE Awards, in partnership with Insero & Co. CPAs, LLP. Our unwavering belief in extending avenues of economic progress to all employers, regardless of their background, is a key part of our mission.
The Greater Rochester Chamber MWBE Awards serves as a tribute to the accomplishments of minority- and women-owned businesses (MWBEs). It celebrates the outstanding achievements of the region's fastest-growing MWBEs, recognizing their ongoing success through growth rankings that consider both the percentage increase and the actual dollar amount of revenue growth.
Join us for the awards celebration on Thursday, May 2nd, at the Floreano Convention Center. A pre-ceremony reception and vendor showcase begins at 7:30 a.m. followed by the awards celebration at 8:00 a.m. Help us honor and recognize the fastest growing local MWBE companies that strengthen the vitality of our region.
Grater Rochester Chamber MWBE Awards celebration will be a party. So, bring your team and enjoy the morning with an amazing sense of camraderie that will fill the ballroom. We want to hear our MWBE companies bring the noisemakers, confetti, boas, or whatever suits their team to help cheer on the many accomplishments, loud and proud!
