The Insight Innovations Awards shine the spotlight on innovation in Northeast Wisconsin by honoring businesses and organizations with innovative ideas who are making a real difference in their industry or community. This celebration is designed to inspire and energize people to build on – and invest in – ideas to fuel the growth of the regional economy.

The event is designed for anyone interested in innovation – business, community and education leaders as well as innovation executives, venture capitalists and angel investors. This year, Craig Dickman, managing director of TitletownTech in Green Bay, is the event’s keynote speaker.

Insight’s confidential panel of judges look through the nominations to determine a winner, based not only on the idea, but the results, too. Awards are handed out in four categories: Planet, Product, Process and People. We are seeking nominations from now until February 15, 2020.
