50 on Fire is a celebration of innovators, big and small, people and organizations, across multiple categories. Though Chicago Inno primarily covers the city's thriving tech, education, and startup communities, we understand that these sectors don't have an exclusiveness on innovation. The unbelievably talented graphic designer at your agency is innovative. The enterprise company that helps fuel your small business is innovative. The non-profit you donate to is innovative. Your favorite food truck is innovative.

Innovation is everywhere in Chicago and 50 on Fire is a celebration of it. Check out the 150 Finalists for 2017 here and join us in celebrating on November 16th!
