Eugene, OR (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
Palo Alto Software is thrilled to be the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year award recipient. The Business of the Year award is given annually to a Eugene-based business that excels across four categories: community caring, environmental values, growth and innovation.
"Palo Alto Software was named 2009 Business of the Year because of its focus on the triple bottom line of sustainability-financial, social and the environment," says Dave Houser, chamber president. "Palo Alto Software truly demonstrates an outstanding contribution to the community in each of these ways."
Palo Alto Software creates, develops and manufactures tools to help start-ups and small businesses succeed. Earlier this year Palo Alto Software launched the Oregon Small Business Boost program, providing $3.2 million of free business planning software to Oregon entrepreneurs. In addition, Palo Alto Software supports a host of community causes ranging from SCORE to the Nature Conservancy.
"With the current state of the national economy, entrepreneurs and small businesses are vital cornerstones in securing the financial futures of all of our families and communities," stated Palo Alto Software CEO Sabrina Parsons. "We are delighted to be recognized by our home Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce for our passion to support these leaders."
Palo Alto Software will receive the award at the Chamber's 6th Annual Emerald Award presentation on October 6th at 5pm at the Hult Center in Eugene. Those interested in attending can reserve seats at http://www.theemeraldawards.org/.
