Entrepreneurs who lead 32 businesses based in Virginia and Maryland are finalists for the regional award, which recognizes business leaders who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
The Richmond-area finalists are:
• Louis Rogers, founder and chief executive officer of Capital Square 1031, a real estate investment and management company in Henrico County;
• Alicia Davis and Ryan Davis, co-founders of Dietitians On Demand, a Henrico-based staffing firm for temporary registered dietitians; and
• Duane Slyder, founder and CEO of Seasonal Roots, a Henrico-based online farmer’s market.
The finalists were selected by a panel of independent judges. The winner will be announced at a special gala on June 15 at The Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year national program.
Award winners in several national categories, as well as the overall Entrepreneur Of The Year, will be announced in Palm Springs, Calif. on Nov. 18.
