25th Annual Small Business Week Celebration

Help us celebrate 25 years of honoring North Florida’s Small Business Leaders, Champions and Top Lenders!
Presented by The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship

Network with over 300 of North Florida’s small business leaders, lenders and supporters as the U.S. SBA presents its Small Business Week awards spotlighting the remarkable contributions of business leaders and champions at the district level.

Featured Keynote by:
Bonnie Harvey and Michael Houlihan, Founders of Barefoot Wine and Best Selling Authors of The Barefoot Spirit
-- Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey co-authored the New York Times bestselling business book, The Barefoot Spirit: How Hardship, Hustle, and Heart Built America’s #1 Wine Brand. The book, chosen as recommended reading for the CEO Library in CEO Forum, chronicles their start in a laundry room in 1986 and creating a nationwide bestselling wine label. With virtually no money and no wine industry experience, they employed innovative ideas and strategic alliances to overcome obstacles and create new markets. They pioneered “Worthy Cause Marketing” and performance-based compensation with a comprehensive view of customer service.
