OEN Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards Dinner 2017

It’s like the Oscars, but with less glam and more grit. Each fall, over 600 local business leaders converge at OEN’s Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards Dinner for Oregon’s largest and most prestigious business networking event.

Join us for our October 25 Awards Dinner to:

  • Meet the movers and shakers in Oregon’s entrepreneurial community.
  • Network with hundreds of business leaders during our opening reception.
  • Help us select this year’s social enterprise Game Changer.
  • Discover up-and-coming entrepreneurs from across the state and across all industries, including the finalists and winners of our Game Changer, Company, Entrepreneurial Achievement, and Wyatt Starnes Awards.
  • Enjoy signature cocktails, local wine, samples from up-and-coming Oregon food & beverage entrepreneurs, and a plated dinner.


Our Awards Dinner will kick off with an opening reception at 5 p.m., featuring signature cocktails from local distillers, appetizers, and samples from Oregon food and beverage entrepreneurs. The program, which includes a plated dinner and local wine, will begin at 6:30 p.m. and wrap up at 9 p.m.
