The Small Business BC Awards recognize the contributions and achievements of BC small business owners.

These businesses contribute to making the province a strong and rapidly growing innovation economy, and create a positive impact in their industry and community.
“We are proud of the advancements APOLLO has made not only as a small business ourselves, but in advocating for and initiating a modern insurance buying process for small businesses across BC and Canada,” said APOLLO CEO Jeff McCann. “We believe in supporting the broker channel, and many of the insurance brokerages who leverage the Exchange are small businesses themselves.”
There are 8 award categories in total. To be eligible for the Best Innovation Award, nominees must have been in operation for a minimum of 12 months in BC. All nominees must have less than 50 employees.
