Over 175 entries were received in the Local Visionary Awards, and 35 companies have emerged as finalists, on their way to the awards ceremony, to take place at Street Fight Summit 2016 on Oct. 25th in New York City.
This is our second year out with these awards, and we couldn’t be more pleased. The caliber of the entrants across the board was remarked upon by the judges, who delivered close results for the top half of the entrants.
We created the Local Visionary Awards as an augmentation of what we do every day at Street Fight. While you all are out there developing innovative ideas, testing them in the market, forging powerful partnerships and winning over new clients, we’re taking in the view. Our daily coverage highlights these ongoing developments, our research digs into the trends, and our conferences help to move the industry forward IRL.
But it’s important to elevate those who may provide a guide for others making their way through the challenges in a constantly changing marketplace. So we chose our categories this year to reflect where the industry is now and where it will be over the next two years. We will evaluate our categories each year, with this goal in mind.
Check out the finalists here, and attend Street Fight Summit 2016 for a chance to meet with them in person at the event. More info on speakers, sponsors, the agenda, and tickets ($350 off until next week!) here.
