Calling Oregon’s best and brightest social enterprises!
Our Game Changer Award honors both non-profit and for-profit enterprises that offer a novel solution to a social problem. We’re looking for companies located in Oregon or Southwest Washington that have:
- A clear vision for solving a social problem
- Demonstrated commitment to impact that is central to the mission of the business
- A compelling answer to the question, “Why is your solution better than existing solutions?”
- A viable business model
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 your own company or make a nomination on a company’s behalf.
