Chicago has become perhaps the fastest growing U.S. hub of technology innovation. The Chicago Innovation Awards is an annual event recognizing locally based companies with newly introduced pioneering products or services.
GPShopper is honored to be among the nominees this year, identified as leading the market with GPShopper's Mobile SDK (Software Developer Kit) cartridge, which offers retailers and brands with an existing mobile app the ability to use over 200 features from GPShopper’s mobile platform, including beacons, push notifications and integrations with social, loyalty and payments, commerce, in-store and advanced marketing programs.
This year’s awards ceremony will be held on October 30th at the Harris Theater in Chicago. More than1500 of the city’s greatest innovators will attend, nominated on the basis of serving an unmet need, providing first-to-market products or services, providing unprecedented value to end users and quantifiable evidence of success. Past winners of the Chicago Innovation Awards include Tastytrade, Ingenuity, and iLight.
The judges include Michael Krauss, President of Market Strategy Group, an organizational coach with over 30 years of professional experience helping organizations adapt to emerging trends, and Thomas Kuczmarski, President of Kuczmarski and Associates, who has helped hundreds of clients from small businesses to Fortune 100 corporations learn to systematically unlock the value of innovation.
We look forward to meeting fellow Chicago-based innovators at this year’s nominee reception at the Park West on September 3rd. If you’re in the Chicago area and interested in meeting the GPShopper team and other local visionaries, you can register for the nominee reception or the awards ceremony and drop us a note to schedule a meeting!
