The U.S. Chamber of Commerce awarded KDM Engineering with the 2019 Woman-Owned Business Achievement Award during its annual Dream Big Awards celebration, presented by MetLife. The awards ceremony celebrates the achievements of small businesses and honors their contributions to America’s economic growth.
“To be chosen as the recipient of this prestigious award among the largest, most qualified group of applicants in the program’s history is truly an honor,” said Kimberly Moore, KDM President and Founder. “I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished and look forward to what’s ahead.”
The Woman-Owned Business Achievement Award recognizes a woman-owned, small business that has attained outstanding business achievement and exemplifies the significant contributions made by women-owned businesses in the country.
Award winners were selected by a panel of judges from 19 finalists in consideration for each of the six Business Achievement Awards and the one Dream Big Small Business of the Year Award. All finalists were also eligible for the Community Excellence Award, which was decided through online public voting.
“The Dream Big Awards celebrate the very best in American small business – the innovators, risk takers, dreamers, and doers who contribute to our country’s growth and prosperity,” said Tom Sullivan, U.S. Chamber Vice President of Small Business Policy. “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is proud to honor small businesses across the country who embody the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. Thank you for all you do.”
Award winners were announced at the Dream Big Awards Celebration on Wednesday, October 16 in Washington, D.C. as part of the 2019 CO—Summit for Small and Growing Businesses.
