WHO WILL JOIN THESE PAST CEA WINNERS? 

Greater Wilmington Business Journal and UNCW's Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship have joined together for the 12th year to help shine a spotlight on up-and-coming entrepreneurs in the Cape Fear region.

This annual awards competition helps to identify and recognize fast-growing organizations and businesses with the potential to make a significant impact on the region. 


EVENT UPDATE:

Due to Covid 19, we're not going to host a breakfast this year. Instead, we’re planning to have an After Hours gathering in the late summer or fall to celebrate the category winners and announce the 2020 Entrepreneur of the Year.


Award categories include: 

* Biotechnology 
* Emerging Company ( A firm in any industry with three or less employees and less than two years old.) 
* Film 
* Health Care 
* Internet-Related Business 
* Manufacturing & Distribution 
* Nonprofit 
* Retail & Hospitality 
* Professional Services 
* Technology
* Covid Innovation

Companies and nonprofits in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender counties are eligible for the awards. The category winners will be featured in a special Coastal Entrepreneur Awards section in the July 17 Business Journal.
