2018 New England Innovation Awards Program

March - May 2018

Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds is pleased to sponsor the 2018 New England Innovation Awards Program.  The New England Innovation Awards Program was started in 1986 and, since then, almost 200 companies have won this prestigious award.  Former nominees have come from varying fields such as technology, manufacturing, service, non-profit, and retail/distribution. 

The program encompasses three distinct phases and events.

1. The Reception for Nominees and Judges: Held in mid-March, this is the first opportunity that the nominees have to present their innovation in front of a panel of 3-4 judges. The nominees are given 15 minutes to speak, with limited use of technology. A reception precedes and follows their time slot with the judges. Principal Deirdre Sanders is on the judges panel for this year's Innovation Awards.
