Recently TweetChat got the chance to speak with Matt Hensler of #InnovationChat. Matt told us more about the Edison Awards program and their goals to bring together the innovation community.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Edison Awards is a program conducted by Edison Universe, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to recognizing, honoring and fostering innovation and innovators to create a positive impact in the world. Edison Awards has recognized and honored the best in innovation globally since 1987. They honor game-changing innovations that are at the forefront of new product and service development, marketing and human-centered design, and are one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of successful innovation.
