This list is not inclusive and the judges will review all applications that meet the set forth requirements.  A recently added “Rising Star” is given to an early stage business who is demonstrating innovation, but not yet profitable.

There are a number of requirements to be nominated, including being independent and headquartered in New England, in business for a minimum of two years, $100 million maximum in revenue and must have between 2 and 300 employees in a non-profit company and 10 to 300 employees in a for-profit company.

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.
