We are very proud to be amongst the 2013 Nominees for the Chicago Innovation Award!
The Goal of the organization is to make Chicago a recognized hub of innovation by igniting a new narrative for our region, strengthening its economic future and building the spirit of innovation throughout the community.
The Chicago Innovation Awards are first and foremost, a civic activity done out of love and respect for the Chicago region. Your involvement as a sponsor is what makes this depth of civic engagement possible.
To be eligible for a Chicago Innovation Award, the product, service, or company nominated must be:

How unique is the product/service?
What new value has been created for the end-user?
Has the product/service created a “me-too” response from imitators?
What financial evidence or market acceptance information does the product/service have to support it?
What is its quantifiable evidence of success?
