About The Best of America Small Business Awards

The Best of America Small Business Awards exists to celebrate small businesses, visionaries, innovators, disruptors, and entrepreneurs for their notable efforts in growing and building our economy and a better working world. 

Unlike other business awards, BASA awards are prestigiously independent and were created with an unwavering love for small businesses, as small is big for our economy, and small companies make up 99% of US companies. 

The award aims to showcase the best of small businesses for their work and contribution to their community and encourage more small businesses to get excited about new opportunities.

With 6 tracks and over 150+ categories to choose from, the BASAs are open to only small businesses in the US to present their best products, services, technology, and innovations.

As one of the only independent awards, the Best of America Small Business Awards are not influenced by big corporations. Furthermore, the award has no vetting process and vows no entrant will experience nepotism or big guys always winning nature.

The awards also have an independent panel of judges comprised of an outstanding group of third-party industry experts who are respected and well-versed in business and are interested in giving back and helping small businesses grow. The BASA independent panel of judges only cares about one thing- YOUR WORK! 

The Best of America Small Business Awards only exists for small businesses and wants them to prosper. To ensure all BASA applicants get the most from the judges, all BASA Awards entrants can access judges' comments on their nominations.

There are many benefits to applying to the BASA Awards programs. Such as all entries that score 75% and above from judges will be named award finalists and get a Finalist digital kit with seals that they can share on your website, emails, and social media. 

The finalists will also be admitted to public voting to increase their chances of becoming category winners, and the companies with the most votes will be placed in the Top300 list.

The Top300 companies will be listed in the Business Hall of Fame as top businesses making huge waves in America and receive the Top300 kit and promotions across our social media and other channels.
