When Regal Fierce Media was opened in 2019, I knew as the CEO that running a small business would take a lot of time and energy to operate effectively. As the CEO, I would need to focus not only on growing the business but also learn to step away from the day-to-day activities and spend time networking and connecting with the community. The Copper Cactus Awards Ceremony was the perfect opportunity to achieve this vision, and I am grateful that my team and I could again attend this event. The Copper Cactus Awards Ceremony is one of Southern Arizona’s most popular events, showcasing the beautiful businesses thriving in our community. Thank you, Tucson Metro Chamber, all the event-category sponsors, and Casino del Sol for creating an unforgettable event recognizing Southern Arizona businesses’ economic impact.
One of the trademarks of this event is the bronze cactus-shaped award winners receive. I am so excited that Regal Fierce Media was voted the winner of the Startup of the Year category. Being selected in this category was an honor because all businesses, especially emerging ones, need the community’s support to help raise awareness about their products and services.
The chance for us to be chosen as the winner in this category, sponsored by Tech Parks Arizona, was meaningful because it was empowering to have a significant local organization cheering us on. Tech Parks Arizona is part of the University of Arizona and attracts technology and talent to the region. The organization supports and retains innovators, researchers, and businesses by offering them the space to create real-world business opportunities.
As the CEO of Regal Fierce Media, the phrase “real-world opportunities” resonates with me. Why? Regal Fierce Media aims to use our expertise to help clients connect their products and services to the real-world needs of Southern Arizona. Doing this, we help our clients create opportunities to scale their businesses and strengthen the economy.
With the Tucson economic outlook getting brighter as each new business opens, I am excited about their impact in 2024. As 2023 ends, I hope you will reflect on what you want to achieve next year. One of my professional goals is to continue strongly supporting the Southern Arizona businesses by attending local events. Tucson creatives are the pulse of the economy, and Regal Fierce Media will be out and about attending business and community events so that we can help these businesses become even more successful. Let’s all work together to make this happen, and I hope to see you at next year’s Copper Cactus Awards!
