Each year, 425 Business reports on countless corporations, small businesses, and individuals that are doing great things in our region and beyond. However, we wanted to find the very best, so we let our readers help us decide.

During an open nomination period earlier this year, you told us about your favorite marketing campaigns and office spaces. You shared your startup stories and recounted august family histories. You touted that your company had the best founder, CEO, or charitable giving program. Then we debated, scored, and came up with the top three contenders in each of our 8 categories the results of which can be found below.

Now, we invite you to join us from 6 to 8 p.m. on Nov. 27 at Bellevue Arts Museum as we kick things off with our keynote speaker, NBA super star turned wealth advisor Detlef Schrempf. After which we’ll reveal the very best of the best.
