Awards Honor Small Business Influencers

100 companies, individuals and applications were honored by Small Business Trends, an online publication that helps small businesses and the people who interact with them.


Small Business Trends, an online publication for small business owners and entrepreneurs, honored 100 companies, thought leaders and technologies as the 2013 Small Business Influencers during an event last Thursday  at an Awards Gala at CUNY Graduate Center in New York City.

The Small Business Influencer 2013 Awards honors small business influencers across organizations, companies and individuals who are influential to small business in the United States and Canada through the products, services, knowledge or support they provide to the small business market.

“The Award recognizes those organizations and individuals who play crucial roles within small businesses, but are often in the background,” adds Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends and co-founder of the Awards. “With small businesses being such a significant part of our business environment, its wonderful see so many individuals and different types of organizations working with the small business market,” adds Campbell.

Among this year's winners are many that are familiar in the professional tax and accounting space, as well as several who have been honored by CPA Practice Advisor via our awards programs, which include the Innovation Awards, the Most Powerful Women in Accounting program, the 40 Under 40, the Readers Choice Awards and the annual Thought Leader program. They include:

Also nominated for the award was Randy Johnston, a long-time columnist for CPA Practice Advisor, founder of Network Management Group, Inc, and a partner with K2 Enterprises.
