Nominations for the Editor's Choice Awards

Nominations are closed for the 2019. You can nominate companies for SmallBiz 2020.
Each year, Hawaii Business magazine honors five local companies with our SmallBiz Editor’s Choice Awards. Each company gets a profile in the May “Best of Small Business” issue.
We honor Hawaii-based small businesses in five categories:
  • Long-term Success (at least 25 years in business)
  • Innovation
  • Green Business
  • Woman-Owned Business
  • New Business (operating less than five years).
Nominees must be businesses based in Hawaii with fewer than 100 employees. Tell us about the company, including why you think it deserves an Editor’s Choice Award. Include specific accomplishments and successes, plus contact information for you and the nominated company.
The deadline to submit nominations is Dec. 31.
If you have any questions, please contact Steve Petranik,  editor at Hawaii Business magazine, at
