  - New Entrepreneur of the Year,
  - Small / Micro Entrepreneur of the Year,
  - Medium / Large Entrepreneur of the Year.

The owner of the title Medium / Large Entrepreneur of the Year can be found in Dobele, and it is SIA “Baltic Candles Ltd", whose success and development over the years is proud and joyful not only of Dobele municipality, but of every inhabitant of Latvia.
