Patrick Antos |

Hyland, creator of OnBase, not only has developed a great brand and product out of their Westlake HQ, but they are starting to create some great programs for high school and middle school students in Northeast Ohio. I was given the chance to hang out with Caitlin Nowlin, the Technical Outreach Program Manager, and learn a little more about what her role is and how she helps drive some of these important initiatives. These programs will help develop the next generation of IT students and get them interested in a career in IT. Enjoy!

Hyland’s focus on culture has become a part of its identity

Patrick Antos |

I had the opportunity to sit down with Kathleen Vegh to discuss some of the great things that are going on at Hyland, creator of OnBase, specifically their culture. You can tell even when you are in the building that there’s a buzz and that people are happy to be where they are. The many programs they offer to their employees ranges from a daycare, to getting your haircut, to community engagement etc. I was lucky to have the opportunity to get to know more about the inner workings and hope you all walking away understanding how great of a place Hyland is to work and play. Enjoy!

The Most Promising Startup is annually one of the most interesting, yet also most challenging, categories in the Best of Tech Awards. The nominees are doing cool work, they’re getting traction and they often have great advisers and outside capital; which can make it hard to separate the companies to finalists and then from finalists to winners.
