Family and privately owned businesses have a tremendous impact on the nation's total economic climate. In fact, they account for more than half the total employment, new job creation and Gross Domestic Product.

To honor the enormous positive contributions made by family and privately owned companies, both large and small, the University of Cincinnati and the Goering Center for Family & Private Business each year presents the annual Tri-State Family and Private Business of the Year Awards.

Applicants are judged by an independent panel of judges on several of the 10 best practices of family and private businesses as defined by the Goering Center. 

Thanks to our Corporate Partners
