Embodee’s hometown is basking in buzz about becoming a cradle for technology startups and entrepreneurs.
And not just Portland. New tech jobs at both small and well-established technology companies have led Oregon out of the Great Recession. So rapid has been the growth that some CEOs collaborated on a video to help entice tech talent to Portland to fill mounting job vacancies.
The range of tech companies, as well as entrepreneurs in many fields, was on prominent display last week at the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network’s annual awards dinner.
Embodee is one of three Portland technology companies chosen as finalists for an annual award given by the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network. OEN announced the news July 9 on its blog. We’re pleased to be considered with the other finalists for the OEN Working Capital Stage Company of the Year Award, and congratulate Janrain and Puppet Labs.
Seven finalists in the other two categories of the OEN Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards, Development Stage and Growth Stage, were also announced. The finalists in all three categories were chosen from more than 40 nominees.
