What are the Excellence in Innovation Awards?

It’s time to celebrate the innovations that have made the Muncie community such a great place. As needs and opportunities have changed, businesses have had to adapt to survive. Innovation within those businesses lead to greater opportunity for success.

On Tuesday, November 14th, we will celebrate five business owners/organizations that have survived change and remained solid anchors for our business community. The five recipients will be honored as inductees into the Innovation Connector’s “Innovation Wall of Fame”. One local student will be presented with the “Young Innovator’s Award”.

In the spirit of innovation, the finalists of The Big Idea Pitch Competition will deliver their business ideas to all in attendance, and a panel of distinguished judges will reveal the winners.

This year we welcome our keynote speakers for the evening, Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak Hawk, better known as Two Chicks and a Hammer and stars of the HGTV hit series, Good Bones. The show follows Laine and Starsiak as they rehabilitate homes in the Fountain Square neighborhood of Indianapolis. This mother/daughter team truly defines what it means to be entrepreneurs and innovators.

In addition, Mr. Gerry Dick, President and Managing Editor of Grow INdiana Media Ventures, LLC, and InsideINdianaBusiness.com will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Please join us for this special event and reserve your table or seat today.

A big thank you to our 2017 sponsors!
