Entrepreneur Council Awards

The Entrepreneur Council of Frederick County is soliciting nominees for its 2010 Entrepreneur Awards. The awards program is now in its 13th year and is one of the most prestigious in the area. The annual awards dinner, held at Dutch’s Daughter restaurant, is also one of the area’s premier business networking events.

This year’s awards program, scheduled for June, is the first to be co-sponsored with the Entrepreneur Council’s promotional partner, 270 Inc. magazine. Each nominee will be featured in the magazine’s June/July issue, and category winners will be featured in subsequent issues. The event also is regularly covered by the Frederick News-Post and the Frederick Gazette.

All locally-owned Frederick County businesses who have not won previously are eligible for nomination. Companies are also encouraged to nominate themselves. A nomination form is attached. The form also can be downloaded from the Entrepreneur Council’s website at For additional information contact Chris Olson at or 301-600-1967.

Companies of all sizes are eligible, although we are particularly in need of nominations in the large company (10+ employees) category.
