Nearly 400 business leaders gathered at The Ritz-Carlton in Tysons, Virginia, for the third annual Moxie Award ceremony on Tuesday night.

This year, the event celebrated “Boldness in Business” by recognizing companies that have established bold initiatives or made strategic marketing moves in the last year. This year, 14 companies and organizations in the D.C. area were crowned Moxie Award winners.

“Since beginning the Moxie Award three years ago, we have received hundreds of worthy award entries from the DC area’s most innovative companies each year. 2019 was no exception,” said Moxie Chairwoman Sarah Cody in a statement. “After careful review and evaluation by a panel of third-party judges, this year’s 14 winners stood out among their competition for demonstrating exemplary innovation, growth, industry leadership, community service, and local achievements.”

Moxie reported that there were more than 130 finalists overall, and there are some familiar #dctech names among the winners.
