A panel of industry experts will judge these prestigious awards, and they’ll base their assessment on your idea, the problem and the impact. Not only that, a team of Inventium analysts will develop your company-specific Innovation Benchmarking Report. Worth $10K, this valuable assessment compares your performance against other entrants.
