Warren Averett is pleased to announce the recent launch of the TiE Atlanta Top Entrepreneurs Awards program, and our official role as the accounting partner to the TiE program. Entrepreneur nominations are being accepted now for 2015, and the selected top entrepreneurs of metro Atlanta will be celebrated and honored at the TiECON SE annual conference on Sept. 12, 2015. The awards program is a re-birth of the past Business to Business (B2B) Top 25 Entrepreneurs awards program which was last held in 2012 after a consecutive eight year run.
Nominations of entrepreneurs are being accepted now and through July 10.
To qualify for this honor, the nominee must have a minimum of $2 million in 2014 revenue and no more than $100 million in 2014 revenue. The nomination process includes providing basic company contact information and revenue information (kept confidential and only reviewed by Warren Averett LLC). Warren Averett merged with GH&I in 2013 and for eight years was the accounting partner for the B2B Top 25 Entrepreneurs program.
Once a nomination is received via the online link and it’s determined revenue criteria is met, an in-person interview is arranged between a Warren Averett CPA and the company founder or CEO in order to learn about the foundation of the company’s growth, profitability, sustainability and to gain insight into the strategy for success, management style, innovation and culture. These qualities play into an overall evaluation and ultimate award ranking of the company.
The rebirth of this awards program by TiE Atlanta and Warren Averett complements each of their long-standing commitments and experience in working with and for entrepreneurs, business owners and privately-held companies.
