WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Smaller Business Association of New England (SBANE) is proud to announce a “Call for Nominations” for the prestigious 2013 New England Innovation Awards. SBANE continues to recognize innovation as the key to economic prosperity and seeks to give acknowledgement to companies whose innovations have been game changers in their given field.
SBANE encourages companies to nominate themselves, innovative customers/clients involved in the fields of technology, manufacturing, service, retail/distribution, non-profit and media/social networking.

Innovation Award winners are entered into the SBANE “Circle of Excellence” where they join companies such as iRobot, Staples, Boston Duck Tours and Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc along with 194 other past winners in a variety of industries. Receiving an Innovation Award provides lasting recognition of a company’s innovative heritage and recognition from SBANE’s nationally recognized partners and sponsors.
Nominations can be made online at www.sbane.org and are being accepted until February 27th, 2013.
