The EPIC Phoenix Award is presented annually to a company that exemplifies the challenges and merits of entrepreneurship. The company may have faced difficult times in developing its technology, selling its products, raising capital, but ultimately managed in positioning itself as a successful company. Through perseverance, learning from mistakes, engaging its staff, customers, and stakeholders, the company eventually achieved its rebound to success. Success is no accident, it is hard work, determination, knowledge, sacrificing, prioritizing, and above all passion for what you are doing. The EPIC Phoenix award is a symbol of the challenging realities that entrepreneurs face and the journey that this entails.
