Chad White, Class-Tech-Cars

Timberville, Virgina, US

Chad White describes Class-Tech-Cars as a small business that does big things. His entrepreneurial spirit, along with his longtime expertise in car parts, led to Chad starting his own business. The eBay platform allows Chad to sell to a worldwide customer base. He noted, “If I had to rely on local sales, my business wouldn’t exist.”

 

SBAN Advocacy Leadership Award

Every year, the eBay Government Relations team honors one member of the Small Business Ambassador Network with our Advocacy Leadership Award. The award is intended to honor a SBAN member who has shown exceptional commitment and dedication to working with our team on issues that affect technology-enabled small and medium sized businesses.

2019 Winner

Angie Nelson, Owner, eWaste Direct, Inc.
Livermore, CA

Founded by Angie and her husband, Joe, on Earth Day in 2008, eWaste Direct is an eco-friendly business diverting electronic waste from landfills by refurbishing and recycling electronics. Angie and Joe stumbled across an entire office’s inventory of pre-owned electronics, which they then recycled and resold, jump-starting their business. They then began offering companies free electronics pickups while many of their competitors were charging a premium for the same service. They continue that process to this day, which helps them build new relationships, evolve and thrive. To date, eWaste Direct has diverted well over seven million pounds of e-waste from landfills and is on target to exceed its next milestone of 10 million pounds.

Laurie Wong, Owner, Reflections of Trinity

Poweder Springs, GA

To say eBay has changed the quality of my life is an understatement. It’s so much more than that. We would not be where we are today without eBay.

Walter Gonzalez, Owner, RC GonWalt

"I love eBay and what is has done for me by allowing me to achieve the American dream. It is like a big family and if I can do it, anyone can do it.” 

 

Sophia Stevens, Owner, Sweet Pea Spices

Dallas, TX  

I carry unique products that might be common in some parts of the country, but hard to find in rural areas. eBay has allowed buyers to connect with our products, which has generated repeat and return buyers.
