20th Anniversary for Innovation Awards

The Small Business Week Innovation Awards will be handed out for the 20th year this year in the City of Kawartha Lakes.

The awards, presented by the Kawartha Lakes Community Futures Development Corporation recognize the newest and most innovative products and services introduced to the area.

In honour of this milestone, the CFDC has developed new commemorative awards, a special partnership with their sister organization, the Kawartha Lakes Business and Community Development Corporation and a unique opportunity to help this year's Grand Prize Award recipient.

The two organizations have partnered to not only increase this year's cash awards but they are also offering the potential for the Grand Prize winner to borrow up to $20,000 in an Interest-free loan to help them with the development of their new product or service.

Innovation Award applications are available on-line at www.smallbizweek.net

The awards will be presented on Friday, October 19th.
