While we go big in everything we do, we at Durée & Company are proud to be a small business based in Fort Lauderdale (especially this week, which is National Small Business Week). That being said, we are extremely excited to announce that the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of CommerceSmall Business Committee just named us a finalist in its 2018 Small Business of the Year Awards competition, Professional Services category! Winners will be named at the May 4 Small Business Awards ceremony, at Fort Lauderdale’s Downtown Events Center.

As a member of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce, and an advocate for the organization for many years, we are incredibly honored to have been named among three finalists in the Professional Services category. Finalists were determined based on several factors, such as philanthropic and chamber involvement, what makes their business unique, goals for success, and much more.

 More than 200 chamber members are expected to be in attendance at the ceremony, and we are ecstatic to be attending this event with so many other esteemed community leaders. We hope to see you there!

After all, there are an estimated 9.4 million women-owned enterprises in the U.S., accounting for 30% of all businesses in the country, according to the State of Women-Owned Businesses Report.

As an immediate-past honoree, our President Durée Ross is passionate about the success of women in the workplace and is proud to sponsor this year’s event. This is an inspiring event for any woman to attend, and an honor to sit among some of South Florida’s most successful and innovative women.
