Calling Oregon’s best and brightest startup companies!
The OEN Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards program honors the skill and courage that it takes for entrepreneurs to create a business out of an idea. Our Company Awards recognize businesses in the startup, development, and growth stages that:
- Address compelling market problems
- Deliver consistent growth
- Have scalable business models
- Know their niche and clearly differentiate from their competitors
- Have founders and/or teams who demonstrate tenacity, passion, and vision
Nominations are due Wednesday, July 19 at 11:59 p.m. PST. You may nominate your own company or make a nomination on a company’s behalf.
Nominees are subjected to a rigorous judging process led by a committee of prominent entrepreneurs and business leaders. After an initial review of the nomination materials, the judges will select semifinalists in each category who participate in both off-site and on-site interviews.
Finalists are determined in early September, and winners are announced at our annual OEN Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards Dinner in October.
To nominate your company or another company, please take 10 minutes to fill out the six-question form below. (If you have made a nomination in previous years, you’ll be happy to know that the form has been dramatically simplified!)
