These 10 COSE businesses are small in manpower
but mighty in their ability to innovate, grow and reach
ambitious goals. They’re thriving and setting the pace for
success. They’re the proud COSE Ten Under 10.
Each year, COSE recognizes 10 businesses with
10 or fewer employees for their best practices in
innovation, growth/success, value to the community and
environment, diversity, promotion and customer service
excellence. Read on for the inspiring stories of this year’s
Self reliance is something that comes naturally to all of us as
small business owners. How else could we rationalize the risks
we take for ourselves and our families in pursuit of what we
know we can do better than others?
COSE’s Ten Under 10 Awards celebrate the best of our
region’s smallest employers. Often unsung, we know that
small business is key to driving economic recovery and the
ideas and inspiration that are required to move our community
from where we have been to where we’re going.
As a business with fewer than 10 employees myself, I’m
inspired by these company’s stories and the great work they are
doing for their customers, employees and the betterment of the
region. Please join me in celebrating the 2011 COSE Ten Under
10 Award winners.
