Ann Arbor artisan tile company Motawi Tileworks has been named the Michigan Small Business Association Woman Owned Small Business of the Year for 2016. The award will be presented at a gala ceremony in Lansing tonight, Thursday, May 5.

Nawal Motawi says: “It has been said that running a business is like running a race with no finishing line. Receiving this award feels like I got to break the tape at the finish line for once. The journey to be the best that we can be is much sweeter when we know we are on the right track. The people of the Motawi companies receive this honor with gratitude.”

Michigan Celebrates Small Business (MCSB) is the state’s premier awards program celebrating small business excellence. Over 60 businesses, including the 2016 Michigan 50 Companies to Watch, will be honored during the awards dinner. Awardees, guests, and small business supporters will gather for a cocktail reception, keynote speaker and the awards dinner, which will be held at the Lansing Center in Lansing.

The awards program will occur during National Small Business Week, May 1-7, drawing extra attention to Michigan’s role in stimulating the national and global economy.
