Destination Innovation

Destination Innovation 2014 featured a competition of 16 of the region's innovators who discussed their innovative technology, including why it is disruptive and how it solves a real-world problem. The companies, divided into social, commerce, government and security categories, were selected by online votes submitted during a competition on the Capital Business website. After listening to two minute pitches from each of the innovators, attendees at the event voted for one company in each category and the top two companies from each category moved on to the final round of the program.

The final round consisted of a head-to-head competition between the remaining two companies in each category. A panel of experts asked the competing companies questions about their innovations, markets and business strategies. The winner in each category - LynxFit by Byte an Atom Research (Social), Homesnap (Commerce), LMI (Government), and Key Cybersecurity (Security) - was decided by the expert panel.

The event also featured keynote remarks from SocialRadar's Michael Chasen and former HP CEO Carly Fiorina.
