We’re excited to share that our CEO, Tore Steen, has been named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 Pacific Northwest Region Award finalist. Now in its 34th year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors entrepreneurial business leaders whose ambitions deliver innovation, growth, and prosperity as they build and sustain successful businesses that transform our world. Finalists were selected by a panel of independent judges comprised of previous award winners and other business leaders.

This year, unstoppable entrepreneurs who have provided extraordinary support for their communities, employees, and others during the COVID-19 crisis will also be recognized for their courage, resilience, and ingenuity.

Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive award programs for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The nominees are evaluated based on six criteria, including overcoming adversity; financial performance; societal impact and commitment to building a values-based company; innovation; and talent management. Since its launch, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.

Says Tore, “It’s a huge honor to be named a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2020 Pacific Northwest and be included amongst such impressive leaders. I’m proud of how far CrowdStreet has come–2019 was a banner year–and how quickly the team has pivoted in the wake of COVID. To me, being unstoppable is only possible when you have phenomenal people behind you.”

Award winners will be announced through a special virtual event on October 6, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. PDT.
