Each year, South Sound Business reports on countless businesses and individuals that are doing great things in our region and beyond. So now we want to find the very best and are letting you, our readers, help us.

This October, we are hosting our first-ever IDEA (Innovation, Distinction, Excellence, and Achievement) Awards, recognizing the standouts in our business community in the following categories:

  • Best Office Space
  • Manufacturing Firm of the Year
  • Outstanding Leader of the Year
  • Most Innovative Company
  • Legacy Business of the Year
  • Most Philanthropic

We’re asking you to nominate the trendsetters, innovators, leaders, and givers that help to make the South Sound thrive. Nominations are open until Aug. 15.

We will feature the winner in the magazine and present them with an award at our IDEA Awards event on Dec. 3 at Historic 1625.

Send us a nominee and help us make our first IDEA Awards a success.
