For the fourth year in a row, Geeks and Nerds has been named a winner of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s DREAM BIG Blue Ribbon Small Business Award®. This award annually recognizes 100 companies for their success and their contributions to America’s economic growth and vitality.


Winners were selected from a record number of applicants from communities across the nation. They were judged in four key categories: strategic planning, employee development, customer service, and community involvement.

“Small businesses across America today face more economic and regulatory hurdles than ever before, but each of these outstanding companies is rising to the challenge,” said U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue. “These Blue Ribbon Award winners have worked hard, taken risks, and achieved success, helping strengthen their communities and local economies.”

Dr. Jonn Kim, CEO of GaN Corporation stated, “We are excited to be included in the Top 100 Small Businesses in the US again. Geeks and Nerds are making a positive contribution for our employees, our community and the US economy by providing innovative services and products.
