To celebrate the Chicago Innovation Awards, Vedder Price Intellectual Property group Shareholder Angelo Bufalino joined the award winners to ring the Nasdaq closing bell in New York on August 18, 2021. Prior to Nasdaq, the winners attended a networking luncheon at Vedder Price’s New York office, sharing their products and ideas with each other. Chicago is the only city to have its top innovators come together to ring the Nasdaq bell. The annual event emphasizes the surge of innovation occurring in the Chicago region and shines a spotlight on the organizations that make up its vibrant economy.

The winners of the Chicago Innovation Awards cut across all industries–high-tech and no-tech, for-profit and not-for-profit. Each organization won by addressing an unmet need in the marketplace through a unique solution that provided value to end-users and delivered impact in the marketplace.
