We love what’s now become our annual Small Business Super Hero contest. Once again, we were impressed by the diversity of small business super heroes out there and the incredible entries we received. After much thoughtful deliberation, vote-tallying and donut-cake eating, we’ve chosen our winners!
First place: RetroRazor
One man’s noble effort at greening up the facial hair industry? A romantic Italian backstory? And…his wife nominated him (calling him her Safety Razor Super Hero Husband)! Chadd Bennett’s cool vintage-style razor business won by a whisker.
Second place: KitBook
At BatchBlue, we love kids, we love science, and we love kids who love science. Kudos to Ed Basconi and his sidekick David Jones for their efforts in improving science teaching and learning, turning both kids and teachers into Science Super Heroes.
Third place: jitterbug.tv
We confess, some of us BatchBlue parents have been fans of this cool music site for kids for a while. So when we received their contest entry, we were very excited. We could also relate to the problem co-founders Dan Gellert and Randall Green are solving, which is to provide a safe, fun place for kids to find appropriate music online. That’s pretty super to us.
Thanks to all of our entrants for your truly amazing efforts on behalf of small businesses everywhere.
