Award Winners

Ben Franklin Innovation awards will be presented to six recipients, companies, or individuals who have achieved business success through Ben Franklin's funding and assistance, have helped others to achieve success, or have improved their businesses through innovation. Each award recipient exemplifies outstanding achievement in that particular category.

Chat Rooms

This year’s chat rooms will give guests an opportunity to talk with innovators past, present, and future. Four Ben Franklin clients, including two former innovation award winners, will be available in separate chat rooms, and guests can go to one or move through more than one.

Chat rooms are only available real-time to live iXchange guests. They will not be taped, so this is your only chance to attend. As added encouragement, one guest from each chat room who participates will be selected at random to receive a $50 Amazon gift card!
