I received the following note from Jerry McColgin of Insight2:
I wanted to make you aware of something that is coming out of Greater Indy Innovation Roundtable (GIIRT). We are launching the Indiana Innovation Awards (IIA)www.indianainnovationawards.com , patterned after the Chicago Innovation Awards. In support of this we will be looking for nominations for companies that have launched a truly innovative product or service over the past 2 years (you can see additional criteria on the web site). I’m guessing that there are companies that you work with that could easily be nominees for this award. There are probably many from INpact that would be interested as well (would you mind mentioning it at an upcoming meeting?) I’d love to invite you to the IIA season kick-off. It will be held downtown at Barnes & Thornburg on May 17th from 4-6 PM. There will be a speaker from Purdue there, free food & drink and a great kick-off for the IIA inaugural season.. We’re hoping to get a good turn-out including reps from our sponsors and judging panel. It would be a great place for you to see what is coming up and to learn more about the IIA.
If you are interested in participating, contact IIA. Also, be sure to submit your nominations.
