The nominees for the Chicago Innovation Awards cut across all industries, from large corporations to start-ups, for-profit and non-profit, high tech, low tech, and no tech. The common thread that weaves throughout all of the finalists is their commitment to innovation. The list of finalists is posted on the Chicago Innovation Awards website.
Over the next few weeks, the judges will select the 10 winners of the Chicago Innovation Awards, as well as winners of the Up-and-Comer Awards, Social Innovator Award and the first ever Collaboration Award. These innovations will be celebrated at the 12th annual Chicago Innovation Awards at the Harris Theater on October 30th.
Another award is the coveted people's choice award. The recipient of this award is selected by popular vote. To cast your vote, go to the voting page of the Chicago Innovation Awards website. Voting ends on October 4th. You can also vote via the app, which is available on iTunes.
More information about past winners and other events is available on the website. Tickets are available now via Eventbrite.
