Congratulations to Daniel Yu, the founder of Reliefwatch. Reliefwatch was one of the companies to win the 2015 Chicago Innovation Awards. Reliefwatch provides a inventory system for health clinics in developing countries via cell phones. Daniel is a student at the University of Chicago and part of the Future Founders’ Fellowship.
The Chicago Innovation Awards celebrated two dozen companies for inventive products and services. This year’s winners were culled from 535 nominations, which were narrowed down by 12 judges to 100 in September and then 10 finalists for the main award and 10 in the Up-and-Comer category, as well as special citations including the 2015 People’s Choice Award. Trophies were presented at the Harris Theater before a crowd of more than 1,000.
Along with this recognition, winners will get a chance for group meetings with Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Gov. Bruce Rauner and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and a trip to New York to ring the Nasdaq closing bell.
