We are incredibly proud to be included on the Weatherhead 100 list of Upstarts for 2014!
If you haven’t heard of it, Case Western Reserve University is located in Cleveland, Ohio, not far from our home in Akron. It’s one of the top schools in the country and is recognized especially for the Weatherhead School of Management. Each year, the Weatherhead School celebrates entrepreneurship in Northeast Ohio by assembling a list of the fastest-growing companies based here in the area.
Last night, nine members of the Expand team attended the awards dinner, donning our finest, to rub elbows with other winners and accept our award.
We’re thrilled to be included, and are honored to be keeping company with so many great companies from our hometown and nearby. The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well here, and it was very apparent how much the area means to local business owners, who are passionate about sustaining growth and creating jobs.
To be included, companies need to demonstrate continued growth over a 5 year period, and we’re very proud we’ve met the criteria.
