It’s time to submit nominations for the 2023 Community Innovation Awards! In partnership with our friends at Techpoint, we’re recognizing outstanding businesses and individuals in Monroe County.

Check out the website here, and nominate a deserving business or person to get the recognition they deserve. Then get ready to join us at The Mill this fall for a swanky soirée with friends.

Best Places to Work is in its sixth year of recognizing our community’s top employers. The competition is open to any business with six full-time employees (or the equivalent) located in Monroe County. We distribute surveys to employees at the nominated companies, and then we compile and weigh the scores (employee surveys count for two-thirds of the score, employer surveys for one-third). Final rankings include a few special categories to recognize employee development and recognition programs. Nominate a business for Best Places to Work! Deadline to nominate is August 4, and yes, you can nominate your own company.

Fast 15 recognizes the star employees who make things happen. Know someone that the company can’t live without? The person who gets things done, finds solutions, and is the go-to person you want on your team? Make someone’s day: notice their great work. Nominate a star employee for an MVP award! Deadline to nominate is August 4. You can submit multiple nominations, and yes, self-nominations are accepted.

The FUSE Innovation Awards recognize superstars in our thriving tech and innovation scene. Know an amazing company, entrepreneur, mentor, or community leader in the startup ecosystem? Nominate for one category or all of the FUSE awards! Deadline to nominate is August 4.

And don’t forget: This fall, we’ll gather at The Mill to clink glasses, announce the winners, and celebrate the amazing people and businesses in our community. And until then, submit those nominations!
