We were a finalist in the 2009 Spark Awards International Design Competition. Nike, Fuse Project and IDEO won the competition but were were pleased to make it into the finals with our Clipa purse hanger.
Today we attended the awards celebration for Excellence in Entrepreneurship. We were honored to be nominated for the award after being in business for only 9 months. Mike’s previous company, Tectrix Fitness Equipment, Inc. received the 1995 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Manufacturing in Orange County, California a year after being nominated. Sometimes it takes a few nominations to make it to the top. Congratulations to the five EIE winners for 2010!
