Small Business of the Month
Your Contributions Make a Difference
Being recognized as a Small Business of the Month is an acknowledgement of your valuable contributions to the Omaha business community.
Each month, this distinction is given to a Greater Omaha small business, with 50 or fewer employees. This business excels in more areas than one – pride in their business, top-notch customer service and an enviable work culture, to name a few.
The recipient is saluted by the Chamber’s board of director’s and featured on our website. Read more about our recent winners.
