Calling Oregon’s best and brightest entrepreneurs!
Our Entrepreneurial Achievement Award recognizes an entrepreneur or founding team with a record of outstanding achievement in the last 18 months. We’re looking for people or teams who:
- Demonstrate tenacity, passion, and grit
- Recognize, and capitalize on, opportunity
- Positively impact the communities in which they operate
- Actively support our entrepreneurial ecosystem
Deadline: Wednesday, August 16
Individuals or founding teams are considered eligible for the Award for Entrepreneurial Achievement if they found and/or operate a for-profit enterprise or venture, assuming material risk and personal accountability for the venture’s survival. Individual nominees do not have to have been on the founding team, but do need to have assumed significant risk to their career and/or personal assets.
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.
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 September, and winners are announced at our annual OEN Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards Dinner in October.
You may nominate yourself or make a nomination on a person or team’s behalf.
