Does your company deserve recognition as one of Oregon’s best and brightest?

On Wednesday, October 15, over 600 entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders will gather to celebrate our state’s best and brightest young companies and entrepreneurs.

Our Awards program honors the skill and courage that it takes for entrepreneurs to create a business out of an idea. Named after Northwest entrepreneur and angel investor, Tom Holce, the Awards not only celebrate entrepreneurs, but highlight their importance to the region’s economy.

We honor exceptional companies in three categories – launch stage, development stage, and growth stage – as well as an individual or founding team who can point to a track record of outstanding achievement over the last 18 months.
