AmiSight 6/9: Will Inc. Get Up to Its Old Tricks?
I wasn't surprised to see that Inc. is reopening its Power Partners awards for a second time this year. This list is intended to promote B2B businesses that other entrepreneurs can't live without.
As many of you may remember, I resigned from my long-standing Inc. column last year, protesting their decision to place predatory lenders on their 2022 Power Partners list. The last thing entrepreneurs need is to be placed into debt traps, and when companies that purport to be friends of small businesses promote these companies, it makes my blood boil.
So the question this year is, will they pick some predatory lenders again after Inc. is done collecting all of their application fees for this year's list? I hope they learned something from last year’s experience. Only time will tell.
