10 Local Businesses Will Win
If you’re a small business in Southern California, it’s crunch time, and not just because the holidays are right around the corner— but because Small Business Saturday is also soon! Platform LA has launched its Small Business Saturday Competition in a search for the most notable designers and businesses around SoCal. The winning small businesses will be selected by Platform’s community of stores and restaurants and will be announced on November 15. The 10 winning small businesses will be able to showcase their goods and services in Platform’s first Small Business Saturday, on November 25. Platform will also provide each winner with a vendor station consisting of a table and chair, a complimentary parking space, and wifi to showcase their goods and services.

If you have a creative product or brand, or know someone who does, and think that either should be at Platform, here’s your chance! To nominate yourself or your favorite small business for the market, go to Instagram and comment on any photo from the account you’d like to see win with the hashtag #SBSPlatform and tag @platform_la.
About Platform LA
Platform LA – the remarkable retail project by David Fishbein and Joseph Miller of Runyon Group is Culver City’s prized shopping destination. Part of the Hayden Tract, the most dynamic neighborhood in Los Angeles, the versatile center offers a collection of 120K square feet of curated merchants, chefs, and creative companies from around the world. Platform was created to showcase independent small businesses and is excited to welcome the community to join in celebration of these types of businesses on Saturday, November 25th.
Miller states, “Our entire business is finding, nurturing and encouraging new independent businesses. We already have a great community of merchants and chefs and working with them to source the next great talent is something that is very exciting for us.” As the world of retail continues to rapidly transform, Platform knows that the future is in small entrepreneurial businesses, and has made this a huge focus for their merchandising efforts. Since opening Platform a year and a half ago, they have embraced any opportunity to celebrate the creativity and entrepreneurial spirit of those merchants and chefs. Now is the time to enter the competition, and it couldn’t be simpler— and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
An appearance at the Small Business Saturday Market should be the icing on the cake for any business, considering the additional exposure just before the holidays and impending sales. Make sure to use the hashtag #SBSPlatform and tag @platform_la in any post on the account of the business you want to see win a spot at Platform’s Small Business Saturday Market.
