For the second year in a row, and third time overall, Metisentry has been named as a 2016 Cascade Capital Corporation Business Growth Awards’ Honoree. We are among 41 companies in the Akron/Canton area to receive this honor.
The Cascade Capital Corp. Business Growth Awards recognize businesses in the Northeast Ohio region that have achieved superior growth in sales and/or employment over the past five years. Winners are categorized by Service, Manufacturing, or Technology. Specialty awards are also presented including an Entrepreneurial Spirit Award and First Merit Legacy Award.
“The talent and dedication of our team is a major contributor to our growth and success. And, as demonstrated by the list of honorees, this region is prospering. We’re proud to be a part of it.” – Marling Engle, Metisentry Founder & CEO
In honor of this achievement, Metisentry will be recognized at the awards ceremony to be held on Tuesday, October 4, 2016. The event is located, conveniently for us, at the neighboring John S Knight Center right here in Downtown Akron. As you may recall, Metisentry team members love getting steps in. As in years past, those attending to represent Team Metisentry plan to meet up at the end of the work day and make the short walk to the next block up for the evening’s celebration.
Considered Akron’s premier networking event of the year, attendees will be welcomed with a cocktail and networking reception followed by dinner and a keynote presentation by Akron Mayor, Daniel Horrigan. Dessert and the presentation of awards will close the 2016 Business Growth awards celebrations.
Metisentry will receive a commemorative plaque that will join the others on display in our lobby. Stay tuned our Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter social media pages for live updates and recaps of the event. In the meantime, check out our photo albums from the 2013 and 2015 Cascade Capital Corp.

UPDATE: The awards ceremony was held last night and Metisentry walked away with not one but two awards! In addition to being recognized as a 2016 Honoree, we also received a specialty award in the Technology category for Best Overall Success Story. Check out pictures here!
