Las Vegas Business Press announces winners of first State of Nevada Innovation Awards

This year, the Las Vegas Business Press staff has chosen to hold one big awards ceremony, inviting all industries to come together to celebrate the burgeoning innovation of our state.

Entries were accepted from Nevada companies Feb. 20 through March 31. Companies had the option of submitting different entries in multiple industry categories. Entries were judged solely on the information provided in the online entry and each entry was evaluated by three judges who scored each entry independently. The judges were: Raj Tumber, SCORE Las Vegas mentor; Bob Cooper, certified economic development professional/consultant; and Lynn Ingham, digital talent guide and president of LVIMA. Honorees were selected by the highest total score for each entry.

The May 20 event will be held 6:30 p.m. at the Enclave, 5810 S. Eastern Ave.
