Each year, 425 Business reports on countless businesses and individuals that are doing great things in our region and beyond. Now we want to find the very best, so we’re letting you, our readers, help us decide.

This November, we are hosting our second annual IDEA (Innovation, Distinction, Excellence, and Achievement) Awards, recognizing the standouts in our business community in the following categories:

  • Best Office Space
  • Standout Startup
  • CEO of the Year
  • Entrepreneur of the Year
  • Most Innovative Company
  • Best Marketing Campaign
  • Legacy Business of the Year
  • Most Philanthropic

We’re asking you to nominate the trendsetters, innovators, leaders, and givers that help to make the Eastside thrive. Nominations are open until Aug. 15.

We will feature the winners within the pages of the magazine and present them with an award at our IDEA Awards event on Nov. 21 at Bellevue Club.
