You are likely familiar with the annual Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN) Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards.  Oregon’s largest annual statewide gathering, it celebrates and showcases our best and brightest entrepreneurs.  At the 2014 event, held at the Oregon Convention Center, two alto clients won the OEN Award in their respective categories.

Puralytics was presented the OEN Game Changer Award for the Puralytics SolarBag, a sunlight activated water purification system.  Luke Kanies, founder and CEO of alto client Puppet Labs, took home the OEN Entrepreneurial Achievement Award.  Puppet Labs was also nominated, and one of two finalists, for the OEN Growth Stage Company of the Year.

Congratulations to Puralytics, Luke Kanies and Puppet Labs!
