The Entrepreneur of the Year Award celebrates those individuals who have taken the initiative to start and grow a successful small business in Door County.

The Industry of the Year Award recognizes a construction, service or manufacturing business that has made a substantial impact on the community, and has enjoyed significant accomplishments during the past year. This year marks the 48th year of this prestigious award, first presented by the Door County Chamber of Commerce in 1973.

The Door County Lifetime Achievement Award honors individuals who have spent 20+ years of their career or of their life, building, operating and/or owning business(es) in Door County that have had a uniquely positive and lasting impact on the Door County economy and business landscape, and who actively participate in civic and community development. This honor will be awarded as-merited (not necessarily annually).

Any Door County resident, business or employee can nominate a business, entrepreneur or lifetime achiever by filling out a nomination form or by contacting DCEDC. Self-nominations are encouraged. For a nomination form or to ask questions, please email: tom@doorcountybusiness.com.
