NEO Success Awards 2014
The 81 winners of this year’s NEO Success Awards have shown what it means to be successful — growing revenue, adding employees and making a profit — throughout the last three years. They are examples of what keeps Northeast Ohio moving. This year, we train an eye on the little guys (and gals) — from the lawyer who started a company that focuses on helping nonprofits raise money to the tech entrepreneur with three different winning businesses. We also get behind what one big number means to a software firm and how a tchotchke is really a promotional solution.
