We’re very excited to announce that Happenstance is a nominee for this year’s Chicago Innovation Awards!
To give you a quick idea, the Chicago Innovation Awards annually recognize new, innovative products and services in the Chicago-area. And previous winners have included a range of companies from Tesla to CTA to EveryBlock.
Last year, the awards honored the most women-led businesses in its 16-year history, and we think that indicates a promising future. In 2015, Chicago had the highest percentage of female founders in 35 cities across the globe, and we could now join that statistic with our new female CEO!
Judging is scheduled to start this week, and we’ll hopefully find out soon whether or not we’re added to the list of finalists. In the meantime, you can catch us at the nominee reception on Sept. 6!
So, wish us luck! But whatever happens, we’re simply honored to be in the company of so many talented Chicago entrepreneurs.
