OEN Member NewsOEN Awards: Meet the Finalists in the Growth Stage Category


Finalists have been announced and the big event is only weeks away. 

Hosted by Kim Malek and featuring some of the boldest, brightest, and best startups and entrepreneurs around, this year’s awards dinner is shaping up to be an amazing night of food, networking, and celebration. 

In this post, we highlight the finalists in the Growth Stage company award category and ask them one important question.

Growth Stage Finalists

In terms of revenue, the Growth Stage category is the largest of the company awards. We like to call the winner of this category, “Oregon’s Next Household Name.” 

These are the companies that have a fully marketable product or service, have acquired a critical mass of customers, and have growing revenues of at least 8 million. 

Will this year’s Growth Stage finalists have to endure the same twists and turns as last year when the OEN judges, in a rare move, selected two winners in the Growth Stage category? 

Spoiler alert: no. This year, there can be only one! 

In light of our theme, we asked the Growth Stage finalists the following question: “What do you believe is the most important core value to be successful?” 

Here’s what they had to say.
