SCORE Cape Cod and the Islands 2021 Awards Event

With all the difficulties associated with the pandemic, it was even more important than usual that SCORE Cape Cod & the Islands recognize those businesses that have gone above and beyond to succeed.  Partnering with the Chambers of Commerce across the Cape, we identified 18 businesses as this year’s outstanding businesses on the Cape and islands.

Build A Better Mousetrap Awards

It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who said “build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door.” No one recognizes that more than The Cape and Islands’ Chambers of Commerce. They are the lifeblood of the small business community, offering services, workshops and ongoing support to ensure the development of better mousetraps everywhere.  Each Chamber was asked to name a business in their town that had achieved that objective.
