The companies nominated for each award were carefully selected from over 2,000 Columbus Chamber members, and the winners were chosen through an even more careful deliberation process. Even being nominated for such an honor was a very big deal for us, but winning it was simply thrilling!
Zack, Patrick, and Ben represented Data Cave at the event, and it was a positively great experience. In addition to spending the evening with many inspiring local business leaders, Dr. John Wall, Chief Technical Officer at Cummins, gave a speech on his own experience stepping out with risky business undertakings. It was great hearing about his many different experiences at Cummins, and why the ability to innovate and take risks is essential to their business model. The ability to innovate and take risks are vital in our industry as well, and they are things that we have taken to heart as our business has grown over the past several years.
Winning this award was an absolute honor for all of us at Data Cave, and we would like to congratulate the other winners, as well as all of the companies who were nominated. We are proud to be a part of such an excellent community!
