We've Got a Lot of Moxie: 2014 Moxie Awards Recap

Courtney Beasley

Last night, Walker Sands enjoyed an evening out under red lights and a disco ball to celebrate The Third Annual Moxie Awards. We were finalists in the Best Service Provider category and it was our first year recognized by the Moxie’s.

The energy in the room was electric as the Chicago tech community moves forward to greater heights. Mayor Rahm Emanuel lit up the stage with his enthusiasm over eBay’s recent announcement to open offices in Chicago, creating over 360 jobs; reminiscing over the fact that PayPal (now a wholly owned subsidiary of eBay) left Chicago in the late 90’s because they couldn’t find the tech talent.

While we didn’t walk away with a trophy, being recognized for our services in the Chicago tech community is a win in itself.

We sincerely congratulate all of the winners and look forward to the possibility of next year!
