The 3rd Annual Sacramento Region Innovation Awards will recognize the area’s vibrant innovation community — from startups to established companies — and their breakthrough creations. Manufacturers can apply themselves or submit a nomination up to July 20. Eligible entries will undergo a strict evaluation process by peers and leaders from the Capital Region’s business, civic and academic communities. Pioneering innovations will be judged on market need, economic impact, disruption and novelty.

The program will accept entries for recently developed business innovations that are established in the 9-county Sacramento region. New technologies, as well as other products, services and processes, must fit within one of the eight program categories, including

  1. Advanced Manufacturing
  2. Food and Agribusiness
  3. Government and Civic
  4. Hardware and Electronics
  5. Medical and Health – MedTech
  6. Medical and Health – BioPharma
  7. Software
  8. Sustainability.

In celebrating regional innovation, the awards aim to strengthen the Sacramento story, build the local economy, and stimulate the creative minds fueling our innovation ecosystem.
