Check out the winners of this year's Chicago Innovation Awards. These innovators are at the top of their game and I'm looking forward to spending time researching their great work.
According to BusinessWeek, 'This year's winners are as impressive as ever, ranging from Abbott Laboratories (ABT)'metro Chicago's biggest company measured by stock value'to PrepMe, a 2005 startup with only 10 full-time employees. The winners' creations include Internet services, of course. Just as impressive, they've also discovered ways to improve gear or processes that go back centuries.'
