SYRACUSE, NEW YORK -- Syracuse-based small business Short Enterprises was recently selected for the 2013 Best of Syracuse Award in the Professional Services category by the Syracuse Award Program. The companies chosen, one winner per business category in each region, exemplify the best of small business; leading through customer service and community involvement.

Founded in 2011 by Syracuse-native and social entrepreneur W. Michael Short, the firm has quickly made a name for itself by procuring over $5 million in development related grants, incentives, tax benefits, or equivalents for a diverse array of clients in pursuit of noteworthy projects that address key social, environmental, and community challenges.

Additional notable efforts have included authoring the City of Syracuse's Community Literacy Action Plan for the All-America City Competition in 2012, developing and implementing strategies to address abandoned inner-city commercial properties with the intention of restoring them to viable use, and spearheading the largest privately pursued green infrastructure project in Onondaga County under the nationally acclaimed Save the Rain Program with over a million dollars in committed funding.

Each year, the Syracuse Award Program identifies companies that have achieved exceptional success in their local community and that have demonstrated their ability to use various marketing methods to grow their business in spite of difficult economic times. Recognition is given to those companies that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Syracuse Award Program and data provided by and collected from third parties such as clients and collaborators.
