SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--()--Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Secretary of State Michele Reagan will join outstanding business leaders and small business champions to honor their contributions to the economy at the 25th Annual Enterprise Business Awards Luncheon (EBAL), presented by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and hosted by the Arizona Small Business Association (ASBA).

The EBAL awards luncheon attracts hundreds of high-level executives to celebrate Arizona winners of the SBA Small Business Week awards on May 15, 2018, at The Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort, 5001 N. Scottsdale Rd. in Scottsdale. Event information is available from ASBA at 602-306-4000 or www.arizonaEBAL.com.

The U.S. Small Business Administration recognizes hard work, great ideas and dedication to excellence during its 2018 National Small Business Week Awards, starting April 29. Since 1963, National Small Business Week has recognized the outstanding achievements of America’s small businesses for their contributions to their local communities and to our nation’s economy.

"Each year the SBA has the honor of spotlighting Arizona winners of our Small Business Week awards in a ceremony that recognizes and celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit and community activism that has long characterized the small business community of our great state,” said Robert J. Blaney, the District Director of the SBA in Arizona. "These men and women are the risk takers, the innovators, and the employers that power our economy and daily serve our communities, in business and as local leaders.”

“Small business owners who demonstrate a true passion for building something great and are willing to take on challenges to achieve big goals will be honored by Arizona Governor Ducey and Secretary Reagan. We are proud of the support from our top leaders to recognize the success of our members. With more than 90,000 small businesses located in Arizona, small business owners are the people who are driving the state’s economy. The Enterprise Business Awards Luncheon (EBAL) provides the opportunity for us to inspire entrepreneurs making a difference...the go-getters, the do-ers, the forward-thinkers, creators and the Arizona small business champions,” states Angelia Hill, ASBA Vice President, Marketing.

A special presentation sponsored by COX Business, 3TV and ASBA, the Small Business Boost Contest, will be highlighted at the luncheon. The public selects the top three finalists online and the final winner will be announced. This is a highly anticipated moment of the event, full of surprise and emotion. The COX Small Business Boost contest will reward one small business with a grant to help them expand.

ASBA continues a 45-year legacy of educating local small businesses about critical issues facing Arizona’s businesses, creating new and better ways to make business-to-business connections, and advocating for public policy supporting Arizona small businesses.
