Alabama Launchpad, a program of the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama, wants to recognize top innovation in the state. Do you know a company or individual that goes beyond the conventional?
The Alabama Innovation Awards celebrate innovation achievements occurring across the state, in five categories: Corporate Innovator of the Year (small company, 1-50 employees), Corporate Innovator of the Year (large company, 50+ employees), Outstanding Achievement in Innovative Manufacturing, Outstanding Public-Private Partnership in Innovation, and Lifetime Achievement in Innovation. The awards were created to raise awareness of the importance of innovation based economic development, and to encourage entrepreneurs and inventors to continue and accelerate this important work.
Innovation can happen all across the state. It can happen anywhere. It can happen in a machine shop, in a university lab, or in emerging and traditional industries. It can happen in rural areas and in metros.
Self-nominations are encouraged for all award categories.
This competition is limited to applicants residing in Alabama, United States
