No. I’m asking you. Who won at the 2023 OEN Awards, last night? Oh. Oh, I see. Fine. I’ll do the work. I see how you are.
Oregon Entrepreneurs Network hosted their annual awards gala on Thursday, November 16, 2023, at the Armory in the Pearl. From photos, it looks like it was a packed house, with hundreds of folks gathered to hear who won what, this year. And it took a slightly different format.
This year, OEN changed the format from a dinner to an awards ceremony reminiscent of the Oscars. The event took place at Portland Center Stage – The Armory and included a welcome reception and after party in addition to the awards ceremony.
Here’s a quick recap of the companies and people who received recognition:
