“The most important message of the Chicago Innovation Awards is one of confidence and courage,” said Thomas D. Kuczmarski, co-founder with Chicago journalist Dan Miller of the awards. “The economy is challenging but each nominee believes the simple truth that a powerful new product will find a rewarding market and has the courage to pursue their vision.”
Each year ten winners are chosen from among the 75 finalists by a panel of judges reflecting a cross section of Chicago’s business community. In addition, each of the 75 finalists is automatically in the running for the annual “People’s Choice Award,” selected through online balloting at www.chicagoinnovationawards.com.
The finalists are also each awarded a scholarship to attend a day-long executive education program titled “The Practical Innovator,” taught at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
