Vote for Small Business Stars

With Start Small, Go Big, it's all about the little guy

start small, go big!

A Message from the DC Voting Bureau

Dear reader,

As of this notice, you have exactly 90 days before you can weigh in on the fate of this country. But that’s three months from now.

Today there’s another hotbed issue: DailyCandy’s third annual Start Small, Go Big Contest.

We’ve spent the last few weeks combing through indie biz entries from coast to coast, from Ghanaian textile-inspired clothing to a Jewish recipe innovator and beauty products that simply won’t sweat away. Still, the final picks rest in your hands.

Lucky winners receive the executive DC treatment: a DailyCandy Academy mentorship under small-to-stellar brand gurus (Rebecca Minkoff, Jonathan Adler, DwellStudio’s Christiane Lemieux, and Fresh co-founders Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg), Web and email coverage, and a trip to New York City culminating in a party thrown just for them.

It’ll be downright presidential. And a hell of a lot more fun.

Vote now at dailycandy.com/startsmallgobig.
