Bacon at the 2012 Something Independent Entrepreneur Awards

October 3, 2012 Leave a comment

We were a proud sponsor for the 2012 Something Independent Entrepreneur Awards last night and Dave also had the honor of being one of the judges for the participants.

What is SIEA? Something Independent invited business from all around Colorado to compete for a grand prize of $1,500 in a video competition. More than that, to hold an event that would show case all the business and bring them them to the public attention. In their words: “Across Colorado there exists a distinct independent spirit that is nowhere more evident than in those Colorado entrepreneurs living at the intersection of business and lifestyle. In recognition of their commitment, their accomplishments and their passion…This is not a business plan competition. This is 90 seconds to make our judges believe in you.”

23 participants from all over Colorado participated, some were entrants from last year producing new videos for 2012:

(Active Junky, Alkaline, Apex Sports Group, Astis, Bould, condorcam, Denver Beer Co, Evol, Folsom, Grace, In the Soup, MHM, Mobile Canning, Oogave, Shredly, Oz Longboards, Pakems, Peakvibe, Skea, Snug Organics, Street Swell, White Girl Salsa, Wild Goose Canning)

It was a tremendous event, we had a great turn out here at Battery 621! The top three finalists were Apex Sports Group, Condorcam (our friend here at Batter and a returning finalist), and MHM (also a returning applicant). But there could only be one winner…

Bake-off? Nope. Bac-ON

For us here at BWBacon Group, the glass is always half-full.  That’s why we love the optimistic flare of Sugardale Foods’ second annual Great Sugardale Bac-On, a cooking contest with a bacon bent.  Sugardale is accepting recipe submissions for three categories:  Appetizer/Sides/Entertaining, Main Dish and Ready Bacon.  The deadline to enter is June 19th.  Finalists will have a chance to showcase their dish at the Ohio State Fair, and the winner receives $3,000 and the highly coveted title of Grand Bac-On Champion!  BWBacon employees are not eligible simply because we already claim that title, informally of course…
