A Chandler business owner is one of the two winners of the Better Business Bureau’s 2021 Spark Award.

Michael Wang, CEO of PeerSquared, Inc. was cited for what the BBB said is his “ethical character, transparent and open culture among their team and history of giving back to their communities.”

His business received a $1,500 prize to further its growth and mission.

“It’s truly an honor to be awarded the first-ever Spark Award,” Wang said. “As a startup, it’s motivating to know that our company culture and values are headed down the right path.

“I look forward to continuing to improve myself and my team members as we work towards making a bigger impact in our community,” he added.

PeerSquared is a peer-to-peer tutoring service that connects students to help each other succeed.

The BBB Spark Award honors young entrepreneurs, age 35 and under, and new business owners who have been operating for less than three years.
