We're In It to Win It - DC Inno's 50 on Fire
What an event! This year’s DC Inno’s 50 on Fire was pretty special for us here at REQ as we were one of the lucky finalists and winners!
50 on Fire brings out D.C.’s most talented to recognize the doers and the dreamers that are pushing the technology industry forward. The 3rd annual event got underway last night at the Howard Theatre where we mingled and honored all of the nominees and the winners.
The nine nomination categories included: Civic (Smart City), Design, Education, Government & Advocacy, Healthcare & Medicine, Investment, Lifestyle, Marketing & Advertising, and Technology. Nominations were open to readers and submissions surpassed last year’s 1,500 and were then narrowed down to a mere 150 finalists by 30 judges. Let’s give a shout out to all the finalists!
As a finalist, companies were invited to shoot a quick video that highlights the people and playfulness of each organization and a montage of the 50 winners segments was played during the event.
