The Narrative Television Network received one of four national awards from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in February 1998 when it was honored with the Blue Chip Award. The Blue Chip Enterprise Initiative was established to identify entrepreneurs who have dealt successfully with significant challenges and to make their stories widely available as models for other small-business people. It also is a tribute to the millions of small-business owners and managers whose efforts and commitment have long been vital to the continuing health of our national economy. The Initiative is sponsored by MassMutualBlue Chip Company; the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; and Nation's Business magazine.
