Last night Jiobit was named one of the winners of the 17th annual Chicago Innovation Awards. Out of 519 nominees, we were selected as one of the winners of this year's Up-and-Comer Award, being recognized as a rising star in Chicago.

In addition to winning this award (and to keep the innovation rolling), we have secured three new patents** for our Progressive Beaconing location technology, already featured in Jiobits being used all over the country. The three software patents speak to our commitment to innovation around location based technology, and are the first in a growing portfolio that will greatly expand over the next three years.

“519 organizations were nominated for this year’s awards,” said Luke Tanen, Executive Director of the Chicago Innovation Awards. “As a group, these nominees generated over $3.4 billion in new revenues from their new products and services, along with the creation of over 432 patents. The 25 winners represent the best from this very impressive group.”

All winners were announced at an event held at Chicago’s Harris Theater on Monday, October 29, with nearly 1,500 business and civic leaders, and supporters of innovation in attendance. The Chicago Innovation Awards, celebrating its 17th year, is the Chicago region’s foremost recognition of the most innovative new products or services brought to market each year. The winning organizations receive a variety of honors including the opportunity to ring the Nasdaq Bell in New York City, and meetings with the Mayor, Governor and Cook County President.

As every parent knows, losing track of a child for even a few moments is terrifying. It was just a split second that I took my eyes off of my son, and he was gone,” said John Renaldi, CEO and Co-Founder. “We are committed to increasing safety standards for children in Chicago and around the world by continuing to advance our technology and service offerings. We are delighted to accept this award and have the support from our local community.”
