Nouvola named a finalist for the OEN’s 2014 Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards!
Starting a business is hard work: endless hours often accompanied by doubting friends and family members and former colleagues. When your vision starts to come to life in all the beauty and symmetry you imagined, the doubters start to fade … but the work doesn’t. We entrepreneurs are inspired – and maybe even a little addicted to the process of building a business from an idea, and we rarely even mind the struggles and challenges and sleepless nights.
But we still treasure those moments of recognition. Here at Nouvola, we’ve been fortunate to receive multiple accolades along the way, and we’ve just received a significant one. We’ve been nominated as one of the three finalist in the Oregon Entrepreneur Networks (OEN) Tom Holce Award for the Launch Stage Company of the Year. Just being nominated to this prestigious award, named for legendary Oregon entrepreneur Tom Holce is a great honor. And as a business with strong roots in Oregon and strong ties to the local startup community, we’re doubly honored to be recognized among a group of our peers. On October 15 will join a group of other “risk takers and history makers” to celebrate our achievements.
In OEN’s own words,
“The Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards honors the skill, and the courage, it takes for entrepreneurs to create a business out of an idea. They are intended to not only celebrate entrepreneurs, but to highlight their importance to the region’s economy. The OEN Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Award is a highly competitive process and it is a significant achievement just to be named as a finalist.”
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we need to get back to work!
