Smart Cities Innovation & Technology Gala

Some may know that products such as the blender, malted milk, garbage disposal, hair clippers, hair dryer, and gasoline-powered lawnmower—even one of the earliest automobiles—were all invented in Racine.  These inventions and so many more have positively impacted the lives of millions across the globe thanks to the ingenuity of our people and the ability of our business community to capitalize on innovation.

“Invention City”—the people and businesses of Racine—are just as ingenious and innovative today as they have ever been.  To highlight the continuing achievements of our community, the City of Racine is introducing the Racine Innovation & Technology Gala and the Racine Innovation Awards.  The Racine Innovation & Technology Gala will bring together the business community, government officials, educators, and nonprofit organizations to celebrate nominees for the Racine Innovation Awards, congratulate the winners, and demonstrate how Racine is still shaping tomorrow.

Racine Innovation Awards

Is your Racine County-based company or organization inventing new products or applications, or applying innovative strategies, that are improving quality of life, customer experience, performance, productivity, or sustainability?  Are its people worthy of being recognized for cutting-edge achievements that are keeping the company and region competitive? Please consider submitting a nomination for the inaugural Racine Innovation Awards. If you don’t know an organization or individual to nominate, but simply want to root for Racine, please consider becoming a sponsor or exhibitor, or purchasing a table or individual ticket.

Nominate your business for the newly established Racine Innovation Awards; attend and celebrate Racine’s newest century as “Invention City.”
