Each year, we honor one individual, one business, and one educational organization who has been a champion for equitable economic development. This year’s list of honorees will be announced later this summer.
Most Business-Friendly Cities
Every year, a blue-ribbon panel evaluates nominations submitted by the cities in LA County to recognize those cities which are doing the most to encourage job creation, facilitate ease-of-doing-business, and cutting through red tape. These awards generate great awareness for the cities that are recognized as finalists and winners for years to come.
