The Weatherhead 100 was forged as a venue for encouraging the truest spirit of entrepreneurialism and rewarding those companies that serve as a beacon to all businesses in Northeast Ohio. The Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University uses a ranking system that acknowledges and brings together the region's fastest growing companies. Today, the Weatherhead 100 incorporates a method for further differentiating and distinguishing qualifying businesses that are both larger (Centurion) and smaller (Upstarts) companies.
Each year, a spirited black-tie event is held to honor the victors - to champion their achievements and recognize their pursuits. The gala event is always a rewarding and memorable event that center-stages Northeast Ohio's best, and allows them to stand proud of their efforts and accept their due accolades from other members of the business community.
