Event Secondary Body
Given the fluid nature of COVID-19 here in Central Florida, and in accordance with the CDC and Florida Department of Health guidance, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the SMART Awards Luncheon scheduled for May 21st. We are currently working with our venue to explore a new date and will announce the new date as soon as this is finalized. Due to this postponement, we will be extending our SMART Awards nomination period until June 30th to give our local companies more time to complete and submit their forms.
The 14th Annual SMART Award demonstrates ACG Orlando's continuing commitment to facilitate relationships among middle-market companies, capital sources and professionals active in deal-making and corporate finance.
The SMART Awards recognize growing companies headquartered in Central Florida - Orange, Osceola, Lake, Seminole, Brevard, Volusia, Indian River and Polk counties - with annual revenue of $5 million to $1 billion, whose accomplishments set the standard for operating excellence among middle market, second-stage growth companies. Selection criteria include quantitative factors such as demonstrated growth in revenue, profitability and employees, and subjective factors such as quality of business innovation, corporate culture, entrepreneurial achievements, product development milestones and demonstrated community involvement.
