INNOVATION... BEYOND CONVENTION!
On February 7, 2013, Central Ohio will gather to celebrate the 2012 TechColumbus Innovation Awards with the theme BEYOND CONVENTION – because it takes unconventional thinking, keen vision and dedicated execution to create life-changing innovative solutions. This will mark the 17th year that the region has come together to honor the individuals, teams and companies which, through their outstanding achievements, have transformed their businesses and been instrumental in creating the future of our regional economy.
Central Ohio’s innovation economy is growing. Thanks in part to programs like 1492, Startup Weekend and 10x, tech start ups are flourishing, leading to an unprecedented level of startup funding from TechColumbus in 2012. Innovation isn’t just a grass roots endeavor – large companies in Central Ohio understand the importance of innovation in maintaining a competitive edge in the fast-changing global marketplace.
Our gala event is growing as well. We’ve gone from less than 100 attendees in 1996 to a record-breaking 1100 in 2011. These attendees represent the region’s leaders in research, technology, healthcare, energy, IT and other key industries. Attendees, nominees and awardees are from companies ranging in size from the earliest stage startups to the largest corporations in Central Ohio.
Join TechColumbus as we showcase, celebrate and honor those who accelerate
Columbus' innovation ecosystem with innovative achievements
that take us BEYOND CONVENTION!
