Boulder Care Founder and CEO Stephanie Strong Named GeekWire's "Young Entrepreneur of the Year"

Portland, OR (May 20, 2021) – Boulder Care’s Founder and CEO Stephanie Strong has been named “Young Entrepreneur of the Year” by GeekWire.

The 2021 GeekWire award recognizes accomplished startup founders in the Pacific Northwest who are 30 years old or younger at some point in 2020 or 2021. This year’s list of six finalists were celebrated for taking on the challenges of entrepreneurship and doing so during a global pandemic.

“Our mission is to help people through some really challenging times, through addiction and mental health,” Strong said. “All of us have been tested so much in this last year, bringing a lot of empathy and awareness to our cause, but perhaps no more than our team who have worked so hard through everything that has come from COVID-19.”

Boulder offers expert clinical services and medication-based treatment, recovery coaching from peers with lived experience, and compassionate care advocacy. “We have fantastic medical models and psychosocial support that help people get well. [It’s an honor to be recognized for bringing] the tremendous power of technology to help make those services more accessible so that people can live amazing lives in recovery,” said Strong.
