This year marked the 10th annual 10 to Watch event where 10 up-and-coming local businesses were honoured by 350 business leaders in the community at the Roundhouse at Bayview Place on April 4th, 2019.
The publicity these winners receive through the 10 To Watch Awards gives them well-deserved applause, builds brand recognition and shines the spotlight on the Island’s spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship.
In the 10 years since Douglas magazine first launched these awards, we have recognized 100 winners who have gone on to become a vibrant and successful part of the entrepreneurial landscape here on Vancouver Island.
“The 10 to Watch Awards give these new businesses a burst of
publicity and well-deserved recognition at a critical stage of their businesses,” says Lise Gyorkos, co-publisher of Page One Publishing, which publishes Douglas magazine. “We are pleased that the awards are such an exciting and enduring part of Vancouver Island’s business landscape.”
