The FirstOntario 1Awards

The winners for this year’s Hamilton/Halton 1Awards competition have been revealed- and the competition was so fierce, the judges choose four businesses who shared close to $175,000 in cash and in-kind services!

Congratulations to everyone- this year’s winners could not be more diverse. Caliber Communications is a technology-based security company that operates on less than 60 watts of power. Humble Bee Inc. specializes in urban beekeeping, honey production and breeding. The Burnt Tongue stirs up some of the best soup you’ve ever tasted and White Elephant showcases Canadian-made women’s fashion. These unique Hamilton businesses all shared their stories of success, their ideas for the future and a genuine love for what they do.

A group of 10 finalists presented their business plans and their ideas about future growth to a panel of judges in April. After a tough deliberation, the judges went with four front-runners and the prizes were allotted to each business based on their needs.

Thanks to everyone who applied, there is so much passion and creativity in our communities.
