About the Business Growth Awards
Cascade Capital Corporation – Business Growth Awards Program

Small business owners today create the vast majority of new job opportunities across the United States, and through the combined sale of their goods and services, account for over 50% of the Gross Domestic Product of the United States as well.

In recognition of the existing and increasingly significant role area small companies play towards the continuing economic growth and vitality of our local area, it is Cascade Capital Corporation’s distinct privilege to present its own Business Growth Awards Program. This Program honors small businesses located in Summit, Medina, Portage, Wayne, Ashland and Holmes counties that have prominently increased sales and/or employment over the past five years.

The criteria to win a Business Growth Award is:

  • A company’s sales must have increased over the past five years or;
  • A company’s full-time employee total must have increased over the past five years

Growth Award winners receive two complimentary tickets to the Business Growth Awards Program, formal recognition at the event, and a beautiful commemorative plaque.

The Growth Awards Program is usually held the on the Thursday of the first full week in October. The Program also represents Akron’s premier networking event for professionals (bankers, accountants, attorneys and economic development) engaged in servicing area small businesses.

Growth Award nominations are mailed out in May and closed in late July. Nominations are typically made by business service providers for their clients; however, a business may nominate itself for the award.
