The program’s selection committee reviewed more than 75 nominations submitted online through the Sacramento Business Journal between June 1 and July 31, 2017. Committee members were drawn from the area’s civic, business, academic and technology sectors, and include representatives from MedStart, CleanStart, UC Davis’ Venture Catalyst, Greater Sacramento Economic Council, The City of Sacramento Mayor’s Office for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Teichert, Intel, Pride Industries, CMTA, Valley Vision, SMUD, Raley’s and Sutter Health, among others.

Last year’s category winners were also invited to serve as judges this year, bringing Sierra Energy, Evolve BioSystems, Free Form Factory and Riskalyze to the mix. Moss Adams tabulated ballots using a new online voting system developed through Qualtrics.

The program also will recognize University of California, Davis as the 2017 “Innovation of the Year” honoree, spotlighting the university’s role as champion of regional innovation and entrepreneurship. Chancellor Gary S. May will accept the award on behalf of the university and provide keynote remarks.
