2023 brings a fresh perspective and a long list of goals to accomplish. If you are considering new ways to motivate your employees, generate a splash for talent recruitment, and highlight the many ways your rockstar company stands out in the crowd, you might consider applying for a coveted business award in ’23. These awards are presented at three highly-marketed, fun awards events which always provide outstanding publicity and networking opportunities.

The A-LIST Awards celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit in the Austin region by highlighting the most promising, inventive, homegrown companies in our community. Businesses self-nominate by company size and investment stage. Categories include bootstrapped, early stage, later stage, angel & seed. We also highlight investors of the year. Applications are judged based on how the company has grown, the problem the company solves, company culture, DE&I, and more. Nominations for A-LIST will be open January 24 - February 21. Join the tech crowd for this swanky, not-to-be-missed celebratory event on May 23rd at the Long Center.

The Austin Gives Awards luncheon celebrates the philanthropic efforts of local businesses. In addition to a namesake award presented by longtime Austin Gives chair, Bobby Jenkins, the event recognizes businesses in the categories of employee engagement, generous business, and volunteer of the year. If your business model includes generosity and social impact, you won’t want to miss the chance to self-nominate for an award starting on May 21 and closing on June 29. The awards luncheon will take place on September 7th at the JW Marriott.

The final awards opportunity comes at the end of the year at the Greater Austin Business Awards. This glitzy party celebrates the best business practices in the region and honors companies that are achieving success and leadership in their industries. Awards include the CEO/Site Leader of the Year, Uniquely Austin Award, and many other categories. Nominations open on August 4 and will close on September 15. The awards event will take place in early December at the JW Marriott.

Nominating your business is free and you don’t need to be a member of the Chamber, so mark your calendar now and keep an eye on our social platforms for announcements. Happy nominating!
