2016 Rising Stars

jen-head-shotTo the Business Journal’s 2016 Rising Star recipients and all young professionals: Be BOLD. Be bold in your quest for knowledge, in your pursuit of leadership, in your failures and in your ability to think outside the norm.

Only bold people change the world and the business community. We at the CSBJ are so proud to honor our city, its businesses and professionals that are doing things right and are making a difference. That is why we honor the BEST businesses and the BEST people.

Every single one of these young professionals earned this award. They are doing so much more than just showing up and collecting a paycheck. They are doing so much more in our community than just being a resident. They are changing their workplaces and our community — all for the better.

Our hope is that these awards are only the beginning for these young professionals. We encourage them all to stay in the Pikes Peak region, use their energy for good and further develop where they enjoy living, working and playing. With the past, present and future Rising Stars here, the possibilities for Colorado Springs are endless.
