impact-winners-2019

Winners of the 2019 Impact Awards, presented at our annual conference in San Francisco.

Each fall, Innovation Leader presents the Impact Awards to honor organizations that are leveraging innovation, technology, and R&D initiatives to achieve extraordinary business results. The awards presentation is part of our annual Impact gathering for corporate innovators, taking place this year from October 20th to October 23rd.

There are three categories this year: the main Impact Awards category; Most Valuable Player, honoring individuals who have made an outsized contribution in their organization; and Best New Initiative, given to programs that are relatively new and thus may not yet be producing the same kind of metrics or results as finalists in the main Impact Awards category. Winners will be announced in late September. (Details on submitting to next year’s competiton can be found here.)
