NATIONAL ENTREPRENEUR WINNERS ANNOUNCED
From The Oxford Center’s 2014 NYC Conference
Atlanta-based Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs (OCE) announced the 2014 Entrepreneurs of the
Year during its first annual NYC Conference with a “Get Real” headline theme (see complete list below).
The interactive, high energy conference gathered hundreds of fast growth entrepreneurs from across the
country for in-the-trenches discussions, Q & A sessions, innovative entertainment and networking venues
to share challenges and successes.
“The winners from this hallmark conference represent some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs I
know, particularly because of their exceptional get real attitudes and results,” notes Cliff Oxford, Founder
of OCE, New York Times blogger and Forbes columnist. After nominations were received from the
expansive membership of the Oxford Center, a committee of seven prominent professionals selected the
finalists and ultimate winners based on revenue growth, EBDIA, and written responses on market
leadership and team culture.
Additional features of the Get Real Conference included a candid Q & A session with David Karp,
Founder and CEO of Tumblr (28 year-old technology entrepreneur who recently sold his company for $1.1
billion), and kick-off comments by CNN Money anchor Christie Romans.
