The SACRAMENTO REGION INNOVATION AWARDS program recognizes the area’s vibrant innovation community — from startups to established companies — and their breakthrough creations. Submissions undergo a strict evaluation process by peers and leaders from the Capital Region's business, civic and academic communities. Pioneering innovations — products, services and processes nurtured within the 9-county region — are judged on novelty, market need, economic impact and disruption.
In celebrating successful innovations from startups and veterans alike, the awards program aims to strengthen the Sacramento story, build the regional economy, and stimulate the creative minds fueling our innovation ecosystem. Founded in 2016 by business law firm Stoel Rives LLP, the Awards are modeled after similar efforts nurtured by the firm in Utah and Idaho over the past 15 years. The Sacramento Business Journal is the media partner and Moss Adams LLP oversees the voting process. The program is one of many corporate, civic and grassroots cohorts working to make Sacramento a recognized hub of innovation within the Northern California megaregion.
