Battle of the Brands: Pick Dallas’ Favorite Brand

We love brackets. We love entrepreneurship. So this year, we’re combining our love of playoffs, friendly competition, and small business to shine the spotlight on entrepreneurship in Dallas.

Welcome to SourceLinkDallas’s Battle of the Brands.

For the next few weeks, we’ll pit Dallas entrepreneurial heavyweights against each other: 64 iconic brands and entrepreneurial upstarts will enter; only 1 will win. Will it be your employer; your favorite luncheonette; your secret indulgence? That decision is yours.

Nominate and vote for your favorite Dallas entrepreneurial company here.

Criteria for Candidacy

Companies will be selected randomly from your nominations of entrepreneurial candidates. Companies must be based in Dallas, show evidence of growth and/or innovation, and have been in business for at least one year.

And yes, not every company will be represented, even some big ones may be missed, maybe some of your favorites if you do not nominate them! We credit that to the capricious whim of the draw and the very lucky fact that here we have a community that teems with entrepreneurial talent. So make sure you nominate the companies you want to see competing for Dallas’ Favorite Brand.
