Do you know an innovative entrepreneur or team who started a business in Racine County in the last three years?
Racine County Workforce Development is accepting nominations for the 10th anniversary of the Apollo Award; a $2,000 cash award to help the chosen business with marketing, product development or research and development.
The award was developed as a way to promote entrepreneurship, County Executive Jim Ladwig said in a written statement.
“This recognition encourages creative business and job creation,” he added.
Nominations will be accepted until 5 p.m. Sept. 22.
The Apollo Award winner will be recognized at the Racine Area Manufacturers and Commerce annual award dinner on Oct. 30 at Roma Lodge, 7130 Spring Street.
