Help Honor The Best Businesses In Arizona


Want to help honor your favorite Arizona company? Nominate it for a 2013 Spirit of Enterprise Award. The awards from the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University recognize some of Arizona’s best businesses for creating jobs, boosting our economy and treating customers right.

 “We’re looking for firms that demonstrate ethics, energy and excellence in entrepreneurship,” says Gary Naumann, director of the Spirit of Enterprise Center at the W. P. Carey School of Business. “They should have a great story and a positive culture internally, and be exemplary community partners in terms of how they give back.”

You can nominate any company that is:

• A for-profit enterprise in business for at least four years;

• Incorporated, headquartered or having a majority of its

business operations in Arizona;

• Employing at least three or more full-time workers;

• Able to demonstrate profitability over the last three years


The winners of the 17th annual Spirit of Enterprise Awards will be announced at a luncheon at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix on Nov. 22. Hundreds of Arizona business and community leaders attend this annual event.
