We are looking for Northeast Florida’s top entrepreneurs.

On March 21, 2024, the Jacksonville Daily Record will feature nine of the region’s top entrepreneurs in our fifth annual recognition of the people who own and run some of the area’s most dynamic, established businesses.

We also will feature our fifth annual Legend, a business owner who continues to run the venture after decades at the helm.

Are you a business owner who has built a successful enterprise from scratch; has shown consistent growth and profitability; or who has overcome market and economic obstacles to achieve success? Let us know.

We are seeking nominations for three categories:

Entrepreneurs whose company reports annual revenue:

• Up to $2 million;

• $2 million to $15 million; 

• More than $15 million.

Three finalists will be selected for each category.

Qualifications include:

• The entrepreneur must be a current owner-shareholder and CEO.

• The company must be headquartered in the five-county area of Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau and St. Johns counties.

• The entrepreneur should fill out the form. Applications from third parties may not be accepted because the entrepreneur must be aware of and agreeable with the nomination.

• The business must be at least 3 years old.

• Finalists must share annual revenue for 2023, 2022 and 2021; provide an employee count for each of the past three years; and be willing to be interviewed and photographed.

• Previous winners will not be considered this year.

The deadline to complete the nomination form is Thursday, Feb. 15.
