INNOVATION, IT'S WHERE WE LIVE.

 

Wisconsin is an innovative state. Although discussions of  “innovation” are usually directed toward internet startups and biotech companies, creative innovation in Wisconsin involves many industries including manufacturing, the paper industry, sustainable agriculture, life sciences, education, nonprofits, and health care information.

 

The Wisconsin Innovation Awards (“WIA”) seek to celebrate and inspire innovation. The WIA highlights and honors the development of groundbreaking and innovative ideas. If it is a transformational idea we want to celebrate it. We hope to encourage an even greater environment of innovation by bringing innovators together from various business sectors (e.g. tech, food, healthcare, agriculture, nonprofits, education, government), and from throughout the State.

 

Led by a steering committee of business, community and entrepreneurial leaders, the WIA is requesting nominations for innovation awards. The inaugural WIA ceremony will take place on August 26, 2014 in Madison as part of the Forward Technology Festival. The award ceremony is sponsored by American Family Insurance and Baker Tilly .

 

Future WIA ceremonies will rotate throughout the State.
