Nominations open for Spirit of Innovation Awards




Nominations are open for the Chattanooga Chamber’s 2019 Spirit of Innovation Award. Nominate your business or one you know for Spirit of Innovation at bit.ly/2Ye9uyR.

To be eligible for the Spirit of Innovation Award, a company must maintain a meaningful presence in the Chattanooga region either by being headquartered here or the innovation is being developed here.

The innovation must be demonstrably new or different from what exists in the marketplace, have generated sales revenue of at least $50,000 as of the application due date (Sept. 8) and have had its first sale no more than three years prior to the application due date.

The finalists will be highlighted during the Chamber’s Oct. 23 Spirit of Innovation luncheon event. More than 1,000 business leaders are expected to attend, including potential customers and investors.

The Chamber produces a video about each finalist company for the luncheon. These videos – as well as raw footage – are provided to finalist companies for promotional use.

Spirit of Innovation finalists and the award recipient are selected by an independent volunteer committee of local business leaders convened by the Chattanooga Chamber.
