SBA Upstate New York to Announce 2024 Small Business Person of the Year and Women Owned Small Business Person Albany, N.Y.

May 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm

SYRACUSE – To celebrate National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration and its Upstate New York District will recognize the Upstate New York Small Business Person of the Year and Women Owned Business Person Thursday, May 2 at an event in Albany, N.Y.
Upstate New York’s 2024 Small Business Person of the Year was selected from nominees across 34 counties for creatively pivoting the business during the pandemic and in 2023, increasing revenue 87.5 percent and increasing her workforce from 35 to 75 employees. The winner also provides mentorship, sharing her expertise and experience as well as working to solve food insecurity. She also works tirelessly to break down barriers for women and BIPOC
entrepreneurs. Despite all of these commitments, she has grown her business to include 6 restaurants on an international scale.
The 2024 Women Owned Business Person was able to arrest the decline of the company that she took over and has been able to post increased revenue for the past 4 years. In an environment where competitors have had to shutter their businesses, she was able to maintain constant staffing, without a reduction in workforce. She also finds time to serve as a Big Sister for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. This business owner also sits on multiple boards including the NBT Advisory Board, the Capital Region Workforce Development Board, and the Capital Region YMCA to name a few.
