The nominations are open and only one Valley business will win. Love Local, a campaign created by Gateway Bank, gives the local community an opportunity to nominate favorite small businesses for a chance to win a portion of Gateway Bank’s own marketing budget (in the form of a $2500 donation), which will be matched by Forty in the form of branding and design services.
“Small businesses help our economy grow and thrive, and Love Local is one way of showing appreciation while giving the community an opportunity to return the support,” said James Christensen, president and CEO of Gateway Bank.
With nominations open through August 31, Valley residents can visit gcbaz.com/lovelocal to nominate their favorite small business (owned and operated by Arizona residents and with 20 employees or less) and tell Gateway Bank why they think their nominee deserves the boost. The winning company will be announced on October 1.
