LAS VEGAS, Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Las Vegas Business Press State of Nevada 2017 Innovation Awards is now open for entries from Nevada companies and divisions of national companies that are making an impact on the state's community and economy. Entry is open from February 20, 2017 to March 29, 2017.
This is the inaugural year of the Innovation Awards, a program to recognize Nevada's most forward-thinking leaders.
"We believe there are so many innovative companies in Nevada that don't get the recognition they deserve, and that's why we established our annual Innovation Awards," said Debbie Donaldson, publisher of Business Press.
The 2017 Innovation Awards is seeking entries from businesses throughout Nevada and national or out-of-state companies with divisions in the state. Entrants may submit to one of 15 categories such as education, employee engagement, manufacturing, real estate, tourism and research. For a full list of categories, visit businesspress.vegas/innovation.
"We're looking for those companies in Nevada that are taking us a leap forward, not just for the state, but for the country and the world. The Las Vegas Business Press wants to shine a spotlight on those risk-taking, brave companies and celebrate their innovations," said Donaldson.
On May 20, 2017, the Las Vegas Business Press will host their inaugural Innovation Awards in Las Vegas.
All entries may be submitted online at businesspress.vegas/innovation from February 20, 2017 to March 29, 2017.
