2008 SmallBiz Success Awards
For the past year, Hawaii Business magazine solicited entries for outstanding companies with less than 100 employees. More than 50 nominations arrived.
Last November, members of our editorial team reviewed the 50 entries using four criteria: longevity; a unique service or product; rapid sales growth or rapid expansion; and finally, the ability to overcome challenges and make a comeback. The top 20 percent was selected, and honorable mentions were given to 11 more companies.
We hope you, the reader, are inspired by these small businesses. Without them, Hawaii’s economy would not thrive. And, to the winners of this year’s SB Success Awards, congratulations for an outstanding job. We’re proud to tell your stories.
