About New England Innovation Awards

New England has a long history of innovation and entrepreneurial leadership. From the mid-19th century when it provided our nation with everything from axes and saws to textile and cod oil, to current date when superb entrepreneurship, elite educational institutions, student ingenuity and drive come together to develop ideas and products that bring sci-fi movies to mind, New England revolutionizes the way we think and work, on a daily basis.

New England Business Association feels that innovation is at the heart of economic prosperity and we continue to recognize those companies that have transformed their innovative ideas into a product or service that delivers proven value to customers. The New England Innovation Awards Program was started in 1986 and, since then, almost 200 companies have won this prestigious award. Nominees and winners represent a wide array of industries and market segments, such as technology, manufacturing, retail, distribution, non-profit organizations, etc.



The mentoring program was established to help the nominees navigate the process of the Innovation Awards program and fine-tune their presentations to the judges. The role of mentors is a very important part of the program and the nominees are very appreciative to have the help!
