The networking portion of the evening really put us in the right direction with contacts. We have been a supporter of the awards for the past three years and will continue to do so!"

"Being nominated for & winning the award is such positive reinforcement for a small business. As business owners we take risks and work especially hard and the basic reward is the success of the business....the award brings that feeling of success to another level.
Our clients were all so excited for us and we received some great feedback. By letting our contacts at these corporations know about the award we actually gave them information for them to feel good about and justify the business they are giving us."
- Laura Tufariello, Design & Source Productions
"Winning NY Report's Technology Best Practice Award was a very positive experience for us. This award has helped us continue to solidify our reputation as a technology leader among our business partners in the education sector. The Awards Gala itself was a great night for seeing familiar faces from the New York City small business community, as well as making new contacts.”
- Kevin Greaney, Children's Progress
"Fantastic event!!! Once again, your gala has proven to be the “must attend” event for New York executives! Our team agrees that the best place to connect with new contacts and reconnect with old ones is at your gala…The New York Enterprise Report truly knows how to put on a great event! Keep up the great work! See you in '09!"
- Jennifer Walzer, Backup My Info!, Inc.
"I found The New York Enterprise Business Report Awards Dinner held in late September to be an event where access was the value proposition. Not only did I make valuable contacts, more importantly the contacts had direct access to decision makers - many of whom were themselves the decision makers. At the end of the evening I had made direct contact with professionals with whom I am exploring several business opportunities because of their ability to make the call and/or directly open the door and make introductions to the professionals relevant to my interest.
I applaud the good work and mission of the New York Enterprise Report Magazine!"
- Robert L. Morris, Jr., SME, Subject Matter Expert
"I wanted to congratulate you on a great event. I heard numerous individuals mention that this was the best event that they attend all year and I have to agree. There was a great group of small business people in attendance - which is not an easy group to bring together."
Jeremy Waldrup, NYC Department of Small Business Services

"Thank you so much for putting together such a wonderful event. Myself and my team were extremely impressed and overwhelmed with all that you have accomplished."
Brian J. Esposito, Salon Professional Services, Inc. / Avenue You
“It's difficult to find events that truly cater to the small business community; the NY Enterprise Small Business Awards dinner did just that and exceeded my expectations. In a professional, yet social setting, it was very easy to meet like-minded business executives. I met two contacts that may be able to help my business, spent over an hour with one of my clients, and chatted with an industry competitor. It was a great use of my time and a lot of fun.
Chris Zawacki, Greenhouse IT
"Thank you for organizing such a great event. I had a wonderful time, as I did last year. I think the people at my table made a number of connections that will help them in their businesses also."
Sharon Kleinberg, Symmetry
