Road Rat Motors will be recognized as part of the Empact100 list, which honors companies started by young entrepreneurs, during a ceremony at the White House. The event will take place Friday, Sept. 28. Owner Justin Jackrel will be accepting the award on behalf of Road Rat Motors.
“It’s truly an honor to be recognized by [Empact] for this prestigious award. None of this could be possible without my wife Ashley, my parents and brothers, and my wonderful staff at Road Rat Motors.” said Jackrel.
The Empact100 list is comprised of the top 100 companies in the Empact Showcase, a compilation of the United States’ leading entrepreneurs who are age 30 and under, and whose annual revenues or operating budgets (for non-profits) are more than $100,000. In 2012, the companies on the Empact Showcase contributed more than 8,000 jobs to the economy, and controlled $1 billion in revenue.
“The annual Empact100 and Empact Showcase are both a testament to the impact that entrepreneurs are making on our economy, and an inspiration to aspiring entrepreneurs,” said Sarah Green, co-founder, Empact100. “We are proud of all of the 2012 Empact 100 honorees and pleased to support them by celebrating the spirit, dedication and hard work that has made them successful entrepreneurs.”
