Now in its fourth year, The Wright brings together industry leaders who demonstrate the impact, influence and awesomeness of companies operating at the intersection of lifestyle and commerce. Each year, one Colorado company is awarded The Wright in recognition of its commitment to the notion that if you believe hard and do good work, people will notice.

This is not your ordinary business-award competition. The 13 official contenders are challenged to convey their vision, core business proposition and their connection to Colorado in a 90-second video. This is their 90-seconds to make our judges believe.

A panel of judges, comprised of past Wright winners, industry media and economic development leaders will evaluate the video entries and determine three finalists. At the award night celebration on October 14th – which is open to the public – finalists will be revealed and the judges will conduct a live, rapid-fire Q & A with the three finalists to determine the winner, who will receive a cash prize of $3,000.

Award-night tickets go on sale September 16. Mark your calendars to see who will join the ranks of Flylow, MHM Gear, and Voormi as past winners of The Wright.
