The Innovation Entrepreneur Awards (IEA) Program

Sponsored by It Is Innovation (i3) magazine and the CTA Small Business Council, the Innovation Entrepreneur Awards program recognizes inspiring entrepreneurs, leading businesses and exceptional startups in the consumer technology industry. Executives and leading businesses with revenues under $30 million and the contributions they make to the U.S. economy are recognized with these awards. 

Awardees demonstrate innovation, dedication to the industry, community outreach and the tenacity to persevere through business and economic challenges. One consumer technology company, one startup company and one individual consumer technology executive are selected by a panel of industry judges for the Innovation Entrepreneur Awards each year.
