Updated: Nov 4, 2023

The Chamber’s “America’s Top Small Business Awards” celebrate small business innovation, entrepreneurship, and community engagement.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today announced Kane Learning is one of America's top 70 small businesses, selected amid an extraordinary year that saw a record-breaking 15,000+ applicants for its annual “America’s Top Small Business" Awards. Kane Learning, located in central Ohio, is among just 10 small businesses in the Great Lakes Region that have been chosen. The Great Lake Region is comprised of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce selected America’s top 70 small businesses from all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. They were evaluated on their business growth, ability to overcome challenges, smart strategies for success, and community engagement. Seven of the top small businesses will go on to be named finalists. The winner of the coveted title of "America's Top Small Business" will receive a $25,000 cash prize.

“I am honored that we were selected as one of America’s top small businesses by the U.S. Chamber,” said Cassie Kane, Founder & CEO. “I am very fortunate to work with an incredibly talented team that is focused on meeting and exceeding our clients’ expectations, and I believe we do that on a daily basis. This is what differentiates us from other companies that do similar work.”

Kane Learning’s expertise is organization and team effectiveness which includes people leadership, human resource practices, internal and external communication, and coaching. While there are Fortune 500 companies on their client list, they also pride themselves on supporting small businesses and non-profit organizations as they work in tandem to develop and deliver custom communication, learning, and human resource solutions. They integrate their expertise with the unique culture and needs of each organization to deliver solutions that enhance performance and drive results. Clients include: Highlights for Children, Safelite AutoGlass, McDonald's Corporation, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Licking County Aging Partners, Granville, Heath & Lakewood School Districts, Dawes Arboretum, and Licking County Health Department.

On October 19, the top 70 small businesses and seven finalists will be recognized and celebrated at America's Top Small Business Summit: Ready, Set, Scale at the Chamber’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. The winner will be announced at an awards ceremony following the summit.

Summit attendees will gain invaluable insights from the tactical success secrets shared by America’s Top Small Business finalists and will enjoy exclusive access to executives from industry giants such as Google, Walmart, and Meta that ardently champion and promote small businesses.

Earlier this year, Kane Learning was named The Licking County Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Year, an honor that the team was thrilled to receive. In addition to its involvement with the Licking County Chamber, Kane Learning is also a member of the Youngstown Warren Regional Chamber of Commerce.

“Being recognized in the community that many of our team call home felt great,” said Kane. “We are happy to work with businesses large and small, all across the country, but it is nice to know that we are having a positive impact right in our own backyard.”
