2011 Edison Awards Finalists Announced

02/15/2011

For the third year, Wave2 Alliances has been proud to participate in the judging of Edison Best New Product Awards competition.

Late last week, The Edison Awards notified the 90 nominees who’d made the list of Finalists. They’re thrilled to be recognized and are posted on  www.edisonawards.com. The awards symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Alva Edison, inspiring America’s drive to remain in the forefront of innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.

“Thomas Edison pioneered four industries that are crucial to modern life: electric lighting, electric power generation, recorded sound and motion pictures,” said Dr. Paul Israel, Director of the Thomas A. Edison Papers at Rutgers University and member of the Edison Awards Steering Committee. “Edison also made important contributions to a host of other industries, many of which are reflected in this year’s finalist pool.”

Winners of the Gold, Silver and Bronze awards will be announced April 5, 2011 at the historic Capitale Ballroom in New York.

In addition to announcing this year’s Best New Product Award recipients, the evening will feature the presentation of the prestigious Edison Achievement Award to Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford Motor Company, and to John Hendricks, Founder and Chairman of Discovery Communications. Both leaders have made significant and lasting contributions to innovation throughout their careers.
