About this event

Do you love a good story? E-Day is a story-telling event and a NW Indiana regional tradition that began in 1991. Recently, the highlight of the event has been the video profiles of our award recipients and their small businesses, telling their stories.

Wednesday, October 26th, the E-Day Entrepreneurial Excellence awards will continue to honor the distinguished entrepreneurs who help propel the Northwest Indiana economy and those who support them on their journeys. In fact, we think that in 2022 it’s more important than ever to share their stories and celebrate these small business owners who have shown resilience, creativity and contributed so much to our region

The Class of 2022 will have recipients in these categories:

  • Small Business Person of the Year
  • Woman Owned Small Business
  • Young Entrepreneur
  • Minority-Owned Small Business
  • Family-Owned Business
  • Emerging Small Business
  • Small Business Advocate
  • Entrepreneurial Success
  • Advocate for Youth Entrepreneurship
  • Lifetime Achievement

The E-Day 2022 program will be provided in-person with a viewable video later.

Pre-registration is required for this event. The event will be held at the Avalon Manor in Merrillville where lunch will be served.
