The Total Weed Awards were created to honor weed-like growth among entrepreneurs, startups & other businesses in four weedy categories. The award stems from Stu Heinecke's How to Grow Your Business Like a Weed, with foreword by our own executive director, Nicola Corzine.

Everybody knows what it means to grow like a weed. They're irrepressible, untamed, aggressive & supremely adaptable. They never do anything without an unfair advantage. They never do anything alone. They always focus on what makes them win. And they thrive best in disrupted ground. We think that's a pretty good description of entrepreneurs, too.

Every Spring, the Total Weed Award will celebrate the best of the wild, unruly side of entrepreneurship, where disruption, explosive scale & new visions for the future come forth. On May 30th, you're also invited to start submitting nominations of your own favorite, totally weed-like entrepreneurs & businesses.
