ACG Minnesota recently held the third annual BOLD Awards. Created to showcase and honor Minnesota companies that are making bold moves, these awards recognize innovation, collaboration, team and talent management, as well as growth through M&A. C-level corporate officers and their key team members, i-bankers, accountants, attorneys, equity partners and advisers are all considered and included in this awards program, as well as the nominator.
Over 300 attendees gathered to celebrate with the 12 finalists in late February at the Metropolitan Ballroom in Minneapolis. Awards were given in small, medium and large corporate categories as well as nonprofit. Determined by a live audience vote, the BOLDEST of the BOLD award went to Surly Brewing Co. for the “Surly Bill,” a historic and monumental step forward for the Minnesota brewing industry.
“The BOLD Awards spotlight companies that may not have otherwise been on our radar,” said Nicki Vincent, executive director of ACG Minnesota.
