BVM Named a Fastest Growing Company of the Year by Best in Biz

December 21, 2020

Our people continue to show resilience and dedication despite every challenge that came their way over the past year. We’re proud to announce that Best Version Media has been recognized yet again by Best in Biz as a Fastest Growing Company of the Year in the category of Medium-Sized Companies!     

BVM was founded in 2007 with a small handful of magazines in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area. We now boast more than 900 community publications across the U.S. and Canada and we’re on track to distribute more than 33 million magazines this year alone. We’re tremendously proud of our Publishers and their teams, along with our supportive staff, for making this prestigious honor possible even in the unpredictable times we live in today.

The Best in Biz Awards are the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America. This year marks the 10th annual awards competition for Best in Biz, and we’re excited to be amongst the winning organizations. Despite the global COVID-19 pandemic, this year saw a strong group of entries from public and private companies of all sizes – spanning all geographic regions and industries in the U.S. and Canada – proving North American business’ resilience and continuing innovation and growth.

“In this wild year, it’s amazing to see companies still innovating, adapting, and thriving,” said Christopher Null of Wired, who has judged seven of the last 10 Best in Biz Awards programs. “There’s so much in the business world that is inspirational right now.”

Best Version Media’s community publications feature local families and highlight neighborhood news, events and much more. We continue to achieve unparalleled growth and success thanks to our effective business model and the incredible entrepreneurs who remain committed to making it work.

One of our newest offerings that has helped us experience this growth is BVM Sports, a website and mobile app dedicated to local, national and international sports coverage – from peewee to pro. Year after year, BVM finds new and innovative ways to help small businesses brand themselves in the local community. We’re thrilled to be in the digital advertising scene while still doing what we do best:bringing people together with hope and positivity.

We take pride in connecting local businesses to residents in their area and we wouldn’t be winning awards like these as often as we do without our amazing sponsors and readers. Thank you to everyone who makes BVM such a special organization to be a part of each and every year!
