on Tuesday, April 11, 2017
“It is great to see one of our own small businesses is a semi-finalist for this prestigious award,” said Wheeler. “Small business is the backbone of our economy, and it’s great to see a small business like LeadingIT, which supports other small businesses, in the running. I hope you’ll join me in cheering them on with the hashtag #2017TyreeAward.”
The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, Mesirow Financial and The PrivateBank offer the James Tyree Emerging Business Leadership Award to a high-growth entrepreneur who is philanthropically active in the Chicagoland area. The award comes with a $50,000 prize.
The winner, who will be announced at the Chicagoland Chamber’s 113th Annual Meeting on June 6, must display philanthropic values and be active in the local community.
During the kickoff reception on Wednesday, April 12 at Mesirow Financial, 12 finalists will pitch their businesses to a panel of judges while a live audience vote determines which finalists advance. A private panel of judges will convene in May to evaluate the remaining finalists.
