O3 is delighted to be among the recipients awarded the Springfield Business Journal’s 15 Under 15 award for 2015.

O3 awarded 15 Under 15 for 2015From the Springfield Business Journal:
Small businesses have a large impact on the economy, and while they may not be as high profile as more familiar company names, they are collectively a significant economic driver. The U.S. Small Business Administration estimates that small businesses represent more than 98% of all employers and employ nearly half of the private-sector labor force. As the state workforce continues to shrink, small businesses become even more critical to Springfield’s economic stability.

United Community Bank has partnered with Springfield Business Journal since 2003 to honor outstanding small businesses in our community. Each year, 15 businesses with 15 or fewer employees are selected for this award. They must also be located in Sangamon or Morgan county and have been in business for at least two years. This year’s selectees range from a home based business to several with visible retail locations. What they all have in common is that they were nominated by someone who felt they were deserving of recognition.
