Recognizing the Most Exciting Companies in Colorado (Apply Below!)

In front of hundreds of people, Luke’s Circle will be recognizing companies that you need to have on your radar; that you should circle as an exciting company to watch.

Our first ever Colorado ‘Companies to Circle’ Event & Awards Ceremony is being held on May 4th at 5:30pm at Rayback Collective in Boulder.  REGISTER HERE (limited tickets available)…

This will be an event unlike others.  The finalist companies will have an opportunity to pitch the audience and the judges on why they should be named the Top Company to Circle.  It will be an engaging environment to meet people from the most exciting companies around.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Nominate your company (sorry, applications closed 4/12/17)
  2. The selection committee will identify the Finalist companies.
  3. At the event, one employee from each Finalist company will have an opportunity to give a quick 60 second pitch as to why their company should be the Top Company to Circle.
  4. The selection committee and the audience response will collective select the winning companies.

This is a great opportunity to promote your company as an exciting company to watch (and I guarantee it will be fun).

How do companies qualify?

  • Submit your nomination (can be submitted by anyone at the company)
  • No, you don’t have to be a user of Luke’s Circle.  This is for ALL companies whether or not you’ve used this site before.
  • Finalists will be selected based on their growth, company culture, how they support external/community/world causes, and their overall mission.

What do you have to lose?  Nothing.

What do you have to gain?  To be recognized as one of the most exciting companies around.
