IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Online voting is now open to help select the winners of Entrepreneur magazine's Entrepreneur of 2013 contest presented by The UPS Store®. Five finalists in each category—established, emerging and college—have been selected for their impact on their industry, community and employees. Videos featuring the category finalists' companies and entrepreneurial journeys are now posted on the contest website, so that viewers can vote for their favorites until September 17.

The contest finalists represent a range of business ideas and career stages. From the college startup that aims to provide water purification products to developing countries to the crowdfunding site that has raised more than $95 million, each offers an inspirational entrepreneurial story worth recognition. As a sign of continued success for the contest's featured business owners, one emerging business finalist has even been brought back into the spotlight since being named a college finalist in 2010.

"These finalists are significant contributors to their respective industries," said Amy Cosper, VP/editor in chief at Entrepreneur. "We are excited to see how the small business community responds during the voting period and find out which entrepreneurs stand out to their peers."

"We know firsthand the commitment and dedication it takes to be a small business owner, and the important impact they have on their communities," said Michelle Van Slyke, vice president of marketing and small business solutions for  The UPS Store.  "It is an honor for us to help recognize these notable entrepreneurs."

The winners of each category will be profiled in the January issue of the magazine and honored at the luncheon portion of the upcoming 2014 Growth Conference in New Orleans.
