Debi Katsmar Declared Finalist in Welland's Alignable Main Street Mentors Search

Debi Katsmar of PRowl Communications Is One Of The Top Contenders Remaining In Welland's Competition That Ends On August 24.

Welland Main Street Mentors Search Finalist

August 4, 2021 -- The largest online referral network for small businesses, is announcing the local finalists in its North American search for  business leaders who’ve gone above and beyond to help peers and their communities with their economic recovery.

Today, Alignable’s network is honouring Debi Katsmar of PRowl Communications as one of the finalists in Welland’s Main Street Mentors Search. (Last Name) is also a contender for one of two national Main Street Mentor prizes: lifetime Premium Alignable memberships, valued at nearly $11,000 each.

Nearly 50,000 small business owners voted and provided testimonials for their local business superstars. This is the first year Alignable has hosted the Main Street contest and the outpouring of gratitude for the finalists has been remarkable -- at peak times, 50 votes landed every minute. 

The final round of voting starts today. Winners will be announced by early September.

Inspiring Everyone To Band Together

“Thousands of local recoveries across North America are happening at vastly different rates,” said Eric Groves, Alignable’s Co-Founder and CEO. “But there’s one common denominator in communities reaping rewards now: business mentors like our contest superstars are inspiring their peers to come together and move the small business economy forward.”

“The business community means a great deal to me, I've been helping and mentoring businesses for 32 years.  It is amazing how we’re (businesses) all here for each other, despite our obstacles,” said Katsmar. “It is an honour to be a finalist. I look forward to many more years working with Welland and Niagara businesses.  

Local contest winners will receive Main Street Mentor badges on their Alignable profiles, recognizing their contributions. In past years, the awareness generated through contests like this one has helped drive additional connections, prospects, and new business for many winners.

Reinforcing Our Superstars’ Efforts

“While recognizing business leaders driving prosperity is always important, it’s vital to our current recovery that we reinforce our finalists’ grassroots efforts now,” said Alignable’s Co-Founder and President Venkat Krishnamurthy.  “Several didn’t realize how much their peers appreciated what they’ve done for their communities, until they saw so many testimonials emerge from the contest, encouraging them to keep up the good work.”

Proofreading - UGH, How did I miss taht?

Proofreading is one of the hardest things business owners struggle with - it doesn't seem to matter how many times something is read, it isn't until it is published, that spelling mistake becomes obvious - unlike the one mistake in the title of this post, which was done purposely.
