Is your company on the forefront of INNOVATION?
The Innovation Award is awarded to an organization that has been in business 2-5 years in the RVA Region and has demonstrated “out of the box” thinking and a creative approach to any and all aspects of its business.
We are emphasizing three important industry sectors organically emerging in RVA: technology, health and industrial (manufacturing and distribution). We are looking for the most innovative new business in one of those three sectors.
Designed to honor still evolving businesses that are just past incubation but still in a learning and growth phase, the Innovation Award, like all Chamber awards, can go to a business in any of nine jurisdictions covered by the Chamber:
Ashland, Charles City, Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent, Powhatan and the City of Richmond
